Luke Appling

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Lucius Benjamin Appling (April 2, 1907 - January 3, 1991) played his entire major league baseball career (1930-1950) at shortstop for the Chicago White Sox. “Old Aches and Pains” as he was called due to his constant complaints about minor ailments, had an uncanny ability to foul off pitch after pitch until he saw the one that he could drive for a base hit. Batting third in the weak offensive White Sox order, Appling batted .300 or better for nine consecutive seasons (1933-1941) and drove in 1,116 RBI during his career. During his 20-year career, Appling batted below the .300 mark only four times and retired with a career .310 batting average. In 1936, Luke became the first shortstop in the American League to win a batting title at .388, and won his second in 1943 batting .328. Lucius Benjamin Appling was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1964.
