Pie Traynor

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Harold Joseph “Pie” Traynor (November 11, 1898 - March 16, 1972) was considered the best third baseman of his era from 1920-1937. Traynor manned the hot corner for the Pittsburgh Pirates for 17 seasons batting .320 for his career with 10 plus seasons above the .300-mark. Traynor was so adept at the plate that he never struck out more than 28 times in a single season throughout his career. “Pie”, for his love of pastries as a boy, was a highly skilled fielder, posting a .947fielding percentage with 2,288 putouts and 308 double plays. Traynor was a key element in the Pirates success in the 1920s and helped them capture the 1925 World Series championship. He was selected to two All-Star games and finished his career with a .320 batting average, 2,416 hits, 1,183 runs scored and 1,273 RBI with 158 stolen bases. Interestingly, Harold was a health nut and never learned to drive for fear that he would cease walking to the park. Harold Joseph “Pie” Traynor was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1948.
