Charles “Whitey” Alperman came up to the majors after four seasons with the Davenport River Rats of the Illinois-Indiana-Iowa League. Although he had a fairly unremarkable major league career, he did lead the National League with 16 triples in 1907. Alperman had a tendency to be hit by pitches; he was second in the league in that category in 1906 and third in 1907. His main claim to fame is that in 420 at bats in 1909 he walked only twice, which is the lowest single-season walk ratio in the 20th century for a player with more than 300 at bats. That year he batted .248, and ruined a no-hitter when he got a hit in the tenth inning on opening day. Alperman returned to the minors in 1910, playing for the Rochester Bronchos in the Eastern League. He then became player/manager of the Atlanta Crackers of the Southern Association in 1912. He retired in 1913 after batting .266 in 3,335 at bats over eight minor league seasons.
