An early slugger, Hickman was the first player to lead a league while playing for two teams (Boston and Cleveland) with 194 in 1902. That year, he approached a triple crown season when he was second in the AL home runs (11) and RBI (110), and third in BA (.363). On June 30, 1902 Nap Lajoie, Hickman, and Bill Bradley became the first trio to hit consecutive home runs in this century. With the 1900 Giants, he set an NL record for errors by a third baseman with 91, after which he was usually stationed in the outfield or at first base. His nickname described his massive limbs which supported his 5’9″ 215-lb frame.
