Gerald Holmes “Gee” Walker (March 19, 1908 - March 20, 1981) was frequently among the league leaders in stolen bases, though his flakiness and lack of attention often got him picked off on the base paths. A bit of a cut-up in the clubhouse, Walker earned the nickname “The Madman from Mississippi” to the delight of teammates and fans, but the dismay of management. Gee’s best season came in 1936 when he batted .353 with 194 hits, 93 RBI and 17 stolen bases. The following year, he was named to his first and only All-Star Game and for the third time earned MVP consideration. Walker played the outfield for 15 years with the Detroit Tigers (1931-1937), the Chicago White Sox (1938-1939), the Washington Senators (1940) and the Cincinnati Reds (1942-1945). He appeared in two World Series with the Tigers winning the 1935 MLB title over the Chicago Cubs. Gee Walker was a decent fielder with a .960 fielding percentage, but batted .294 with 1,991 hits including 399 doubles and 124 home runs, 954 runs, 223 stolen bases and 997 RBI in 15 years.
