A to Z, The Orioles' Legacy: Bobby Wallace

Player: Bobby Wallace
Years of Service: 15 (1902-1916)
Position: Shortstop

Bobby Wallace is the fifth and final Hall-of-Famer on my A to Z list, elected to Cooperstown in 1953. In fine Oriole/Brown tradition, he was considered the best shortstop in the American League during his prime. He was plenty good with the bat, too, amassing 2,309 hits for his career. He served as player/manager for two seasons: 1911 and 1912.


For each letter of the A to Z Challenge, I will feature one player from Baltimore Orioles/St. Louis Browns history. I hope you will join me. I hope you'll also check out the other 1200+ blogs participating. See the full list at Tossing It Out.
