Stats for Hall of Fame Shortstops



How good was Honus Wagner ? He hit .338 in his rookie season, had fifteen consecutive .300 seasons, won eight batting titles, and stole more bases than many other hall of fame shortstop.

Arky Vaughan averaged four-hundred seventy-three at-bats per season yet he only struck out more than thirty times once during any season of his entire Major League career.
