How many players have hit over .330 with 2,500-plus hits and 340-plus home runs in their careers without earning any recognition today? One that comes to mind is Moose Clabaugh...because he did it all in the minor leagues.

The outfielder was a stellar performer at that level, playing there for 16 seasons and posting career totals of .339 with 2,505 hits, 472 doubles and 346 home runs. He hit at least 20 home runs in a season eight times, while meeting or eclipsing the 30-dinger mark four times. In 1926, with the Tyler Trojans of the East Texas League, he hit an incredible .376 with 62 home runs and 164 RBI in 123 games, winning the Triple Crown! He set the organized baseball record for home runs that year, breaking Tony Lazzeri's earlier mark of 60.

Three times he led the league in moonshots and five times he paced the loop in batting average, hitting as high as .382 in a season. He hit below .300 only three times - in his very first season, 1923, in his very last season, 1940, and in his very brief major league cup of coffee in 1926.

Due to his historic performance in the minors that year, Clabaugh earned a spot with the Dodgers towards the end of the year. He played in 11 games with the team, collecting one hit - a double - in 14 at-bats.

He returned to the minor leagues, continuing to perform extremely well. Near the end of his career, he spent five years in the Pacific Coast League, hitting 70 home runs in that span.

He's another of many players who starred in the minors, but just couldn't cut it at the big league level.
