George “Dode” Paskert carved out a solid 15-year MLB career, wowing fans and peers alike with his tremendous outfield range and overall speed. Known as an elite defensive player, he was underrated as a hitter. Paskert made several appearances on the offensive leader boards, highlighted by his .315 average in 1912, good for ninth in the National League. He finished in the top ten in runs six times, doubles four times, hits twice, RBI once, and he even finished sixth in home runs in 1916 with 8. He stole 293 career bases and finished 14th in NL MVP voting in 1912, when he hit .315 with 102 runs, 43 RBI, and 36 stolen bases. In 1917, at the age of 35, the Cubs traded home run champ Cy Williams to the Phillies straight up for Paskert. Also known as “Honey Boy” for his sweet ballplaying ability, he continued to play in the minors, mostly for the Columbus Senators in the American Association, until he finally retired in 1927 at the age of 46.
