Buck Jordan

A reliable contact hitter, Jordan compiled high averages in the minors, but his way to the majors was blocked by first basemen with more powerful bats. Finally a regular with the Braves in the mid-1930s, he twice topped .300, with a career-high .323 in 1936, and twice had eight hits in a doubleheader (8/25/35 and 6/26/38).
