Jim Bottomley (Bottomly)

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

James Leroy Bottomley (April 23, 1900 - December 11, 1959) was one of two players, the other being Lou Gehrig, in baseball history to collect 150 or more double, triples and home runs in his career. Referred to as Sunny Jim for his up-beat and happy demeanor, Bottomley played 16 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals (1922-1932), the Cincinnati Reds (1933-1935) and the St. Louis Browns (1936-1937). Jim was the first player in baseball to win the Most Valuable Player award that came up through a team’s farm system. A career first baseman, he helped lead the Cardinals to four National League pennants and two World Series victories (1926, 1931). Jim Bottomley retired with 2,313 hits, 1,422 RBI, 219 home runs and had a career .310 batting average.  The Veterans Committee elected James Leroy Bottomley to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.
