Reds slugger Frank McCormick
McCormick received equal acclaim for his glove work at first base as he did at the plate. Despite being right-handed, he carried a career .995 fielding percentage at first base, well before Rawlings handed out its first Gold Glove Awards in 1957. From Sept. 1945 to the following Sept. 1946, McCormick played 138 consecutive games without committing an error.
Cincinnati’s reign atop the NL continued in that 1940 campaign, and though McCormick struggled to a .214 average (6-for-28) in the World Series, the Reds prevailed over the AL champion Tigers in seven games to capture their first Fall Classic title since 1919.
