Freddie Lindstrom

Player Profile

Frederick Charles Lindstrom (1905-1981) was the youngest player to ever appear in a World Series game and the first player in the 20th Century to collect nine hits in a doubleheader. Despite breaking into the Major League at the young age of 18, signed at 16, Freddie Lindstrom played only 13 seasons for the New York Giants (1924-1932), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1933-1934), the Chicago Cubs (1935) and Brooklyn Dodgers (1935). Lindstrom played the hot corner for one of the greatest National league infields of all-time, consisting entirely of Hall of Famer players, Travis Jackson, Rogers Hornsby and Bill Terry. Considered one of the elite third basemen in the NL, Lindstrom beat out legendary Hall of Fame Pirates third sacker Pie Traynor for top honors. Freddie was a dangerous threat at the plate as well, posting a career .311 batting average with 1,747 hits, 895 runs, 779 RBI and 103 home runs. The Veterans Committee elected Frederick Charles Lindstrom to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976.
