    Interesting.

    Found a little about the guy on bb-ref and in a snippet from The Braves Encyclopedia*: .318 career minor league batting average, but he didn't make it out of the minors until he was 32 years old (1924). Once he did make it, he hit .308, .306, .328 (with 201 hits to lead the league), and .306 again, and put together a 618-game playing streak. He could hit, but like you'd think, he could not throw, and when his batting sank down to .268 in 1928 he was gone.
