Arky Vaughn (Vaughan)

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Joseph Floyd “Arky” Vaughan (March 9, 1912 - August 30, 1952) has the second highest batting average (.318) among Hall of Fame shortstops behind only Honus Wagner (.327).  Known as Arky, referring to his state of birth Arkansas, he played 14 seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1932-1941) and the Brooklyn Dodgers (1942-1943, 1947-1948). During his time in Pittsburgh, Arky hit above the .300-mark in each of his 10 seasons and twelve times over the span of his career. Unable to maintain his high standards at the plate after being traded to the Dodgers, Vaughan and manager Leo Durocher had a very public dugout fight and Arky sat out of baseball for three year before returning in 1947. Arky was selected for nine All-Star appearances and was the 1935 National League batting champion when he hit .385. Though not know for power hitting, Vaughan hit two home runs in the 1941 All-Star game. Arky Vaughan retired with a career .318 batting average with 2,103 hits, 1,173 runs scored, 118 stolen bases and 926 RBI. The Veterans Committee elected Joseph Floyd “Arky” Vaughan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.
