Playing in an era which favored slap hitters, Frank Baker developed a reputation as a slugger when he hit 11 home runs in 1911, plus two more during the World Series for the Philadelphia Athletics. Earning the nickname Home Run, Baker led the American League in homers for four seasons, but with never more than 12 in any one year. Baker was a .307 lifetime hitter, twice led the American League in RBIs and batted .363 in six World Series.
