Barnhart was the Pirates’ third baseman until Pie Traynor arrived when he was moved to the outfield. Tough to strike out, he fanned only 149 times in 2673 at bats. He drove in a career-high 114 runs and hit .325 as the Pirates left fielder in 1925. Lloyd Waner replaced Barnhart in 1927 but Waner moved to center when Kiki Cuyler fell into manager Donie Bush’s doghouse and was benched. The slow-footed Barnhart went back to left and hit .319. In the four-game ’27 WS, he drove in four of Pittsburgh’s ten runs. His son, Vic, was a Pittsburgh shortstop in the 1940s.
