Lefty O'Doul - 1933 Goudey

Francis Joseph “Lefty” O’Doul (1897-1969) played much of his career in the Pacific Coast League, but was an extremely successful hitter in the Majors, despite beginning his career as a pitcher. Bouncing back-and-forth from the PCL and the big leagues during the early 1920s, O’Doul eventually found a home with the New York Giants as a leftfielder in 1928 when he batted .319 with 113 hits and 46 RBI. In 1929, Philadelphia acquired O’Doul, teaming him in the outfield with fellow power-hitter and Hall of Famer Chuck Klein. In his first season with the Phillies, Lefty hit .398 with 254 hits in 731 plate appearances, all league leading numbers, which earned him his first of two batting titles. His 254 hits in the 1929 season remains a record number of hits by a National Leaguer in a single season having only since been tied by New York Giant Bill Terry in 1930. Lefty moved on the Brooklyn Robins from 1931-1933 where he won his second batting title in 1932, hitting .368 to lead the NL. O’Doul returned to spend his final two seasons with the Giants in 1933-1934. After retiring as a regular player, O’Doul took over the reigns of the Pacific Coast League and his hometown’s San Francisco Seals from 1937-1951. During his tenure as manager, O’Doul helped develop a young Joe DiMaggio, and his brothers Vince and Dom, stating at one point, “I was just smart enough to leave him alone.” Lefty O’Doul retired with a career .349 batting average adding 1,140 hits, 624 runs, 542 RBI and 113 home runs in 970 games over 11 seasons. Lefty O’Doul was a member of the 1933 World Series champion New York Giants and was an inaugural All-Star game selection. He is also credited with helping spread baseball’s popularity to the Far East as a goodwill ambassador in Japan. O’Doul named the Tokyo Giants after his American team affiliation.
