George Watkins - 1934 Goudey

George Archibald Watkins (1900-1970) drove in the go-ahead runs with a two-run homer in the 3rd inning of Game 7 of the 1931 World Series as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the potent Philadelphia Athletics. George came up through the Cardinals farm system, and then debuted with the Major League club in 1930 when he set the still-standing record for National League rookies for batting average with a .373 mark. Watkins played the outfield for seven seasons with St. Louis (1930-1933), the New York Giants (1934), the Philadelphia Phillies (1935-1936) and the Brooklyn Dodgers (1936). He was a decent fielding posting a .954 fielding percentage, but his success at the plate kept him in the lineup. In 894 games, George Watkins batted .288 with 925 hits including 192 doubles, 490 runs scored and 420 RBI in seven seasons. He returned to the minors in 1937 to finish his career.
