Bill Dahlen stands test of time
Dahlen had an impressive batting average of over .350 two times while playing for the Cubs. He also scored over 100 runs with 10 or more triples in each of his first six seasons.
Dahlen’s specialty, however, was fielding, to which his 7,500 shortstop assists and 13,325 chances attest. He was also a consistent hitter with considerable power for the dead ball era.
