Walter Rabbit Maranville compensated for his lack of size with an overabundance of spunk and determination. Over his 23-year Major League career, spent exclusively in the National League, the wide-ranging Maranville accumulated a record 5,133 putouts and developed a reputation for his eye-popping basket catches. In 1914, he finished runner-up for the MVP Award as a key member of the Miracle Braves.

Did You Know: 
that Rabbit Maranville's record for most seasons played in the National League lasted for over 50 years until Pete Rose bested the mark in 1986?
Walter Maranville is the greatest player to enter baseball since Ty Cobb arrived. I have seen 'em all, since 1891, in every league around the South, North, East and West, but Maranville is the peer of all of them.
