Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"But (Clyde) Barnhart reported that spring weighing about 260 or 270 pounds. He was just a butterball. They took him and did everything they could think of to get his weight down. They gave him steam baths, and exercised him, and ran him, and ran him, and ran him. Well, they got the weight off, all right, but as a result the poor fellow was so weak he could hardly lift a bat." - Paul Waner in Pie Traynor: A Baseball Biography (James Forr & David Proctor, McFarland Publishing, 01/18/2010, Page 96)

Clyde Barnhart made his Major League debut on September 22, 1920, playing in two games ( Game 1 | Game 2 ) on the same day as a doubleheader was scheduled. Three days later, Barnhart played in another doubleheader ( September 25 | September 25 ), then three days later he played in a third doubleheader ( September 28 | September 28 ), and then four days later he played in the only triple header played during the 20th century ( October 2 | October 2 | October 2 ).

Did you know that Clyde Barnhart is the only player in Major League history to hit safely in three different games on the same day? During the triple header ( October 2 | October 2 | October 2 ), Pooch collected a hit in each game played on that historic day:
Triple Header Box Scores
Clyde Barnhart | Triple Header Box Scores | The Washington Post | October 3, 1920 | Page 18

UNBREAKABLE: Hitting Safely in 3-Games in 1-Day

Game 1 : Clyde Barnhart had four at-bats, scored two runs, and had two hits, including a double.

Game 2 : Clyde Barnhart had four at-bats, drove in a run, and had one hit, a double.

Game 3 : Clyde Barnhart had three at-bats, a single off Buddy Napier, game ended after six innings due to darkness.

On September 16, 1945 , hall of fame center fielder Lloyd Waner hung up his cleats after an 18-year career. Why did we mention this on Clyde Barnhart's page? Because Lloyd played in the outfield alongside Clyde with the 1927 Pittsburgh Pirates and 1928 Pittsburgh Pirates then, from his outfield position, Waner watched Vic Barnhart - Clyde's son - playing infield with the 1944 Pittsburgh Pirates and 1945 Pittsburgh Pirates .
