Wally Gerber

The Browns’ aggressive everyday shortstop from 1919 through 1927, Gerber led AL shortstops in errors in 1919 and 1920, but settled down to lead in double plays four times. He had quick hands for everything, except (his teammates said) picking up the check, but when the Depression rolled around, Gerber, who had invested well, became a source of financial help for former teammates.
