Gabby Hartnett
(b. December 20, 1900 - d. December 20, 1972)
From 1922 through 1940, Hartnett was likely the NL's best catcher. A fine defensive backstop, his best season was 1930, when he hit .339 with 37 home runs and 122 RBI. Hartnett was chosen as an All-Star player from 1933 through 1938. In the 1934 game, he was the catcher when Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Simmons, and Cronin were put away in order. He hit .344 as the NL MVP in 1935. His late-season ninth-inning "homer in the gloaming" against Pittsburgh won the 1938 pennant for the Cubs. He had a .297 career batting average, with 236 homers and 1,179 RBI.
