RF Sam Crawford Tigers/Reds

Samuel Earl Crawford (Wahoo Sam)




Bats Left, Throws Left
Height 6' 0", Weight 190 lb.

Debut September 10, 1899
Final Game September 16, 1917

Born April 18, 1880 in Wahoo, NE
Died June 15, 1968 in Hollywood, CA

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1957.
  • Premier deadball era slugger who was overshadowed by teammate Ty Cobb.

  • Batted cleanup behind Cobb and they pulled off several double seals throughout their careers.

  • An easy going sort, Crawford didn't care for Cobb's intense personality and some say they actively disliked each other. Regardless, Cobb respected Crawford's talent enough to petition for his inclusion in the Hall of Fame. Its incredible Crawford needed assistance, since he was probably the top power hitter of his era.

  • All time leader in triples with 309.

  • Led the league in triples six times.

  • Hit more than 20 triples five times and hit more than 10 triples in every full season of his career.

  • Crawford retired as the American League career leader in home runs, extra-base hits, total bases, RBI, and triples.

  • Led the league in home runs twice, RBI three times and total bases four times.

  • Hit an incredible 12 inside the park home runs in 1901.

  • 366 career stolen bases.

  • 2,964 hits and a career batting average of .309.

  • His total of 643 RBI from 1910-1915 were 118 more than his closest rival in the American League!

"None of them can hit them quite as hard as Crawford. He stands up at the plate
like a brick house; there's no moving him away from it. And he hits all the pitchers,
without playing favorites. When he's hitting, they all look alike."
