Floyd Caves “Babe” Herman (June 26, 1903 - November 27, 1987) and Bob Muesel are the only two players in the history of the Major Leagues to hit for the cycle three times. Babe Herman was a tremendous hitter in the 1920s and 1930s; however, his shortcomings in the field and flakiness on the base pads are also why he is fondly remembered. Herman was a powerful hitter amidst the hitting explosion of the late ‘20s, hitting .340, 381 and .393 from 1928-1930 finishing among the top hitters in the league. In 1930, his .393 batting average was second behind Bill Terry’s .401, the last year a National Leaguer batted .400 or better for a season. He was amidst the elite hitters of his era, but was the butt of many jokes, including his own, playing first base and right field. Babe led the National League in errors in 1927 at first base and both 1928 and 1929 as a right fielder. His base running ability was also called into question in 1926 when he hit a double and tried to stretch it into a triple without noticing that his teammates on first and second had also converged on third base, with Dazzy Vance returning to the base when caught in a rundown. Babe was said to have “doubled into a double play,” and was saddled with the nickname “The Headless Horseman of Ebbets Field” by Vance. Herman played 13 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Brooklyn Robins/Dodgers (1926-1931, 1945), the Cincinnati Reds (1932, 193501936) the Chicago Cubs (1933-1934), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1935) and the Detroit Tigers (1937). Babe Herman retired with a .324 career batting average adding 1,181 hits, 882 runs, 399 doubles, 181 home runs and 997 RBI.
