Stan Hack

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Stanley Camfield Hack (December 6, 1909 - December 15, 1979) was a speedy base stealer during the 1930s and 1940s and from 1938 to 1945 was considered among the best players in the league as he garnered Most Valuable Player award consideration each year. The talented third baseman hit .352 in the minor leagues in 1931 before being called up to the Chicago Cubs big club in 1932, where he remained for his entire 16-year career (1932-1947). Stan was a fixture at third on the highly talented Cubs team that featured Hall of Famers Gabby Hartnett behind the plate, Billy Herman at second and Kiki Cuyler as well as numerous All-Stars and Cub greats. Primarily a leadoff hitter, Hack was frequently among the league leaders in on-base percentage and once on base showed that he was also among the league’s elite in base stealing. He led the league twice in stolen bases and stole ten or more bases eight times, topping 20 in 1940. Stan also led the league in games once, hits twice and plate appearances three times. Hack’s best season came in 1938 when he led the league in plate appearances (707) and stolen bases (16) while batting .320 with 195 hits including 11 triples and 67 RBI to earn his first of five All-Star selections. It also began a string of eight straight years where he finished among the top 30 players in MVP voting. He appeared in four World Series with the Cubs (1932, 1935, 1938, 1945). Stan Hack finished his playing career with a .301 career batting average, 2,193 hits, 1,239 runs, 642 RBI and 165 stolen bases. He led the National league five times in putouts and tice in fielding and assists to end his career with a .959 fielding percentage. Following his playing days, Stan was tapped to lead the Cubs once again from the clubhouse as the manager from 1954 to 1956. He also managed the St. Louis Cardinals for the 1958 season and compiled a 199-272 record in four season and 475 career games at the helm as a big league skipper.
