Jimmy Slagle

Nicknamed Rabbit because of his speed, Shorty and Human Mosquito because of his height (5’7″), Slagle was a regular NL outfielder for a decade. His best year was 1902, his first with Chicago, when he batted .315 with 40 stolen bases. A singles hitter with good sense on the bases, his speed and defensive skills kept him in the lineup when his hitting tailed off. In the 1907 World Series against the Tigers, he set a record with six stolen bases, which stood until Lou Brock stole seven 60 years later.
