Roger Maxwell “Doc” Cramer (July 22, 1905 - September 9, 1990) began his career as a semi-pro pitcher but was converted into a hitting in the minor leagues and is the only player in Major League history to go for a record 6-for-6 twice in his career. Cramer surfaced in the Majors as a pinch hitter, solidifying his place in the Philadelphia Athletics lineup as he batted .336 in 92 games in 1932. Doc Cramer played 20 seasons in the Majors with the Athletics (1929-1935), the Boston Red Sox (1936-1940), the Washington Senators (1941) and the Detroit Tigers (1942-1948). He set a still-standing Athletics single season record of 214 hits by a left-hander in 1935, led the American League seven times in at-bats and led the league in 1940 with 200 hits. Over the course of his 20-year career, he hit .300 or better on eight different occasions, earned five AL All-Star selections and helped the Tigers capture the 1945 World Series over the Chicago Cubs. Doc Cramer finished his career with 2,705 hits including 109 triples, 1,357 runs scored, 842 RBI and a .296 career bating average. He was one of the elite centerfielders of his time and posted a .979 career fielding percentage.
