Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Freddie Lindstrom was a Hall of Fame third baseman and outfielder who primarily played for the New York Giants . He played in World Series on both ends of his 13-year career, in 1924 and again in 1935 . Between those, he reached up some very impressive numbers: seven times, he topped .300, including a career-high .379 in 1930 . In addition to his hitting accomplishments, he was considered one of the best third baseman of his time. A foot injury in 1931 led to a position switch to the outfield, where he continued to excel. The Hall of Fame came calling in 1972, a just reward for an outstanding career. He finished with 1,747 hits in 5,611 at-bats, good for a .311 clip. That still doesn't come close to his son's lifetime average however. Chuck Lindstrom is the second son of a major leaguer to make the one hit wonder club, Earle Brucker was the first." - Author George Rose in One Hit Wonders: Baseball Stories (iUniverse Publishing, 04/22/2004, 'Chuck Lindstrom', Page 68)

On October 4, 1924 , Freddie Lindstrom took the field during Game 1 of the 1924 World Series and set the record, still unbroken, for youngest player to ever appear in a World Series game - Lindy was only 18 years, 10 months, 13 days old!

Did you know that Freddie Lindstrom had nine hits in a doubleheader ( Game 1 / Game 1 ) on June 25, 1928, a Major League record that was set first by Wilbert Robinson in 1892, tied several time since ( Most Hits in a Doubleheader ), but never broken?

Freddie Lindstrom Hall of Fame Plaque
Freddie Lindstrom | National Baseball Hall of Fame Plaque | Class of 1976 ( HOF )
Freddie Lindstrom ( 1928 & 1930 ), Rogers Hornsby ( 1921 & 1922 ) and George Sisler ( 1920 & 1922 ) were once the only players in baseball history with two 230+ hit seasons. Seventy-four years after Freddie joined this elite set, Ichiro Suzuki ( 2001 & 2004 ) tied the hall of fame trio, then in 2007 , he became the first (and to date only) player with three 230+ hit single seasons.
