Richard William Bartell (November 22, 1907 - August 4, 1995), known as Rowdy Richard, had a reputation or being a fierce competitor, but also a volatile teammate and employee forcing clubs to move him often in his 18 year career. Bartell came up with the Pittsburgh Pirates and batted over .300 in his first three season, before his was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies. Dick played for the Pirates (1927-1930), the Phillies (1931-1934), the New York Giants (1935-1938, 1941-1943, 1946), the Chicago Cubs (1939) and the Detroit Tigers (1940-1941). He displayed an excellent throwing arm and superior fielding ability at shortstop, but he wore out his welcome wherever he went. Bartell played on three pennant-winning teams – the 1936 and 1937 Giants and the 1940 Tigers. Six times in his career he hit over the .300-mark and he earned two All-Star selections, including being chosen as the National League’s starter at shortstop in the inaugural 1933 All-Star Game. Dick finished his career with a .284 career batting average, 2,165 hits including 442 doubles, 1,130 runs scored and 710 RBI.
