Arky Vaughan, SS


Career: 1932-43/1947-48, Pirates, Dodgers
Fun fact: Bill James rated his 1935 season (1.098 OPS) as the best by a shortstop not named Honus Wagner

Great things come in threes, and three times Vaughan led the NL in runs, walks, OBP and triples. He is something of an underrated great because he spent most of his career on poor Pirates teams.

Vaughan retired in 1943 after clashing with manager Leo Durocher.
