Sam Rice - 1933 Goudey

Edgar Charles “Sam” Rice (1890-1974) is best known for a controversial catch he made in the 1925 World Series of a would-be home run from Earl Smith. Rice caught the ball before the fence, and then went over the wall due to momentum and the controversy began. Rice enjoyed “the mystery” fans and media made of the play and recounted the incident in a letter read after his death writing, “At no time did I lose possession of the ball.” Rice was a consistent batter hitting over .300 15 times and possessed incredible speed, stealing 351 bases in his 20-year career. Rice played 19 seasons with the Washington Senators (1915-1933) and one with the Cleveland Indians (1934) compiling 2,987 hits, 1,515 runs, 918 RBI and 351 stolen bases with a .322 career batting average. Rice would frequently stretch singles into doubles with his speed. He helped lead the Senators to three American League pennants in 1924, 1925 and 1933 and was a member of the 1924 World Series championship team. The Veterans Committee elected Edgar Charles “Sam” Rice to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1963.
