Chick Hafey

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Charles James “Chick” Hafey (February 12, 1903 - July 2, 1973) won the 1931 batting title (averaging .349) by a margin of .0002 and .0007 over fellow Hall of Famers Bill Terry and Jim Bottomley respectively. St. Louis GM Branch Rickey converted the hard-hitting line-drive producer from pitcher to outfielder and Hafey flourished in his new role. Though quiet and understated in nature, Hafey’s bat did all the talking. Chick played 13 seasons St. Louis (1924-1931) and Cincinnati (1932-1935, 1937) batting above the .300-mark nine times including seven consecutive seasons from 1927-1933. Hafey was selected for the inaugural All-Star game in 1933 and accounted for the first hit in All-Star history. Hafey’s career was hampered by eye issues, eventually donning eyeglasses, and is one of two Hall of Famers to wear spectacles (Reggie Jackson). Hafey was a member of four National League pennant winners and two World Series champions (1926, 1931). Chick retired with a.317 career batting average with 1,466 hits, 777 runs scored and 833 RBI. Hafey also holds a National League record of ten consecutive hits in ten straight at-bats. The Veterans Committee elected Charles James “Chick” Hafey to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971.
