Frankie Frisch

Frank Francis Frish
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1947
Primary team: St. Louis Cardinals
Primary position: 2nd Baseman

Frankie Frisch, The Fordham Flash, an all-around athlete who jumped directly from college to the New York Giants, played on eight pennant-winners in 19 seasons. A fine switch-hitter, Frisch compiled a run of 11 straight .300 seasons and set single-season fielding records as a second baseman for chances and assists with the Cardinals in 1927. As player-manager with St. Louis, he instilled the rollicking all-out style of hard-nosed play that prompted sportswriters to tab the Cardinals The Gashouse Gang.

"His range was such that he played second base, some of center field and a slice of right field, too. "
sportswriter Damon Runyon
