Rollie Zeider

This likable utility man held the AL rookie stolen-base record (49) for 76 years until John Cangelosi, another White Sox player, broke it in 1986. Once called Hook because of his beak-like nose, Zeider became Bunions when he contracted blood poisoning after a Ty Cobb spiking sliced into his bunion. When he was traded along with another run-of-the-mill player to the Yankees for defensive star Hal Chase, the New York Globe’s Mark Roth wrote in disgust: “[Manager Frank] Chance traded Chase for a bunion and an onion.” Zeider and Dutch Zwilling are the only two men in the twentieth century to play in three different major leagues in the same city.
