Taylor Douthit

One of Branch Rickey’s farm system products, Douthit joined the Cardinals in 1923 and spent nine seasons with St. Louis before finishing with the Reds and Cubs. A wide-ranging centerfielder, Douthit led NL outfielders in putouts three times, and twice in errors. He had little power (914 of his 1201 hits were singles) but he topped .300 three times. Over or near .300 in each of St. Louis’ 1926, ’28, and ’30 pennant-winning seasons, he faltered in World Series play, going just 7-for-50.
