Frank Schulte Stats

Frank Schulte was born on Sunday, September 17, 1882, in Cochecton, New York. Schulte was 22 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 21, 1904, with the Chicago Cubs. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Frank Schulte baseball stats page.

"Despite those impressive Schulte stats, Wildfire never got much publicity for his talents. He was always upstaged by Hall of Famers - the double play combo Tinkers, Evers and Chance. So instead Wildfire will go down in the history books as the only Major League player with a nickname taken from his pet horse and one of the first pro ball players to receive a big perk. 'In 1911 when he hit the 20 homers, doubles and triples, he was given a car. It was something unusual for 1911 ,' said Alter (Peter Alter, Chicago Historical Society)." - Sarah Schulte on abc7chicago.com (10/08/2003)
