George Sisler

1915/16 M101-5 Sporting News

George Harold Sisler (March 24, 1893 - March 26, 1973) was an exceptional first baseman that played for the St. Louis Browns (1915-1922, 1924-1927), the Washington Senators (1928) and Boston Braves (1928-1930). Sisler’s graceful and intelligent play is evident by his career .987 fielding percentage and 18,837 putouts in 15 seasons. George Sisler was an amazing fielder, but made a name for himself at the plate as well. Gentleman George hit over .300 in 13 seasons, twice topping the .400-mark, and won two batting titles. Sisler lost the entire 1923 season to illness (sinusitis). George Sisler retired with 2,812 hits, 1,284 runs scored, 894 RBI and a.340 career batting average. In 1920, Sisler set a Major League record of 257 hits in a season, which stood for 84 years until Ichiro Suzuki surpassed him in 2004. George Harold Sisler was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.
