Augie Galan

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

August John “Augie” Galan (May 23, 1912 - December 28, 1993) was the first player in Major League Baseball history to play an entire season without hitting into a double play, though he did hit into a much more rare triple play. Augie was a switch-hitting left fielder when his career began on the north side of Chicago playing his first eight years with the Cubs (1934-1941). In 1935, Galan led the National League in runs (133) and stolen bases (22) while batting .314 for the season. He led the NL in stolen bases once more in 1937 and twice led the NL in walks. Though he was often injured and missed significant time due to those injuries, he was a respectable hitter and fielder during his 16-year career. In 1936, fresh off his career year, Augie became the first Chicago Cub to hit a home run in an All-Star Game. On June 25, 1937, he became the first player in Major League history to hit a home run from both sides of the plate in one game. He played left field for 16 years with the Cubs, the Brooklyn Dodgers (1941-1946), the Cincinnati Reds (1947-1949), the New York Giants (1949) and the Philadelphia Athletics (1949). The three-time All-Star played in three World Series with the Cubs (1935, 1938) and the Dodgers (1941), but was unfortunate to be on the losing end of each. Beginning in 1943, Galan hit from only the left side of the plate. The oft-injured Augie Galan retired following the 1949 season after hitting .287 for his career while collecting 1,706 hits including 336 doubles, 1,004 runs and 830 RBI. He also had a .978 fielding percentage with 419 assists
