Monte Cross

After stints with the Orioles, Pirates, and Cardinals, Cross became the Phillies’ regular shortstop in 1898. Connie Mack, his former Pirate manager, lured Cross to the A’s in the fledgling American League. Cross topped AL shortstops in putouts in 1902 and 1903. In the NL, he had led shortstops four times in putouts, twice in assists, and three times in errors.
