Harry Hooper

Harry Bartholomew Hooper
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1971
Primary team: Boston Red Sox
Primary position: Right Fielder

A steady leadoff hitter and spectacular defensive outfielder, Harry Hooper is the only man to play on four Red Sox World Championship teams. One of baseball's most dignified and intelligent players (and owner of an engineering degree), Hooper remains the Red Sox's all-time leader in triples (130) and stolen bases (300). From 1910 to 1915, he teamed with Tris Speaker and Duffy Lewis to form one of the finest outfield trios ever assembled.

"If there was any one characteristic of Harry Hooper's, it was that he was a clutch player. When the chips were down, that guy played like wildfire. "
