Fred Walker - 1934 Goudey

Fred E. “Dixie” Walker (September 24, 1910 - May 17, 1982) suffered the fate of so many talented players as multiple injuries throughout his career kept him from reaching his full potential. Dixie showed power, poise and ability at the plate and excellent defensive skills that the New York Yankees felt could replace the aging slugger Babe Ruth. Walker earned his nickname after his father, the original Dixie Walker, and came from a long line of Major League players, which included his father (Dixie), uncle (Ernie) and brother (Harry). He played the outfield for 18 seasons in the Majors with the Yankees (1931, 1933-1936), the Chicago White Sox (1936-1937), the Detroit Tigers (1938-1939), the Brooklyn Dodgers (1939-1947) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (1948-1949). Dixie Walker batted .300 or better in 10 of his 18 seasons, led the American League in triples (16) in 1937 and led the National League in RBI (124) in 1945. The five-time All-Star’s best season came in 1944 as he hit .357 to win the NL batting title, and finished third in NL MVP voting. Dixie Walker batted .306 over the course of his career with 2,064 hits including 105 home runs, scored 1,037 runs, drove in 1,023 runs and posted a .972 career fielding percentage.
