The former captain of the University of Pennsylvania’s baseball team played baseball in the summers and was a dentist in the off-season. He became a much-traveled utility player, with six ML teams in nine seasons. He hit a career-high .316 while playing three infield positions for the 1927 Giants and Braves. The next year the Braves gave him the shortstop job, the only season he played over 100 games at a single position. He hit .215.
