Bobby Doerr - 1938 Goudey

Robert Pershing Doerr (April 7, 1918-) was discovered and signed by Eddie Collins on the same scouting trip that brought Hall of Famer Ted Williams to the Red Sox. Debuting with the Red Sox in 1938 at the age of 19, Doerr joined a cast of power hitters that included Jimmie Foxx, Dom DiMaggio and Joe Cronin, as Ted Williams would break into the line-up the following year. Playing for the Red Sox for his entire 14-year career, Doerr collected 140 or more hits in every season from 1938-1951 and led the league in slugging percentage in 1944 at .528. 1940, the Red Sox would have the 12th team in history to have four players with 100 or more RBI with Foxx, Cronin, Doerr and Williams. Bobby made the best of his only postseason appearance in the 1946 World Series when he batted .409 in 22 at-bats with 9 hits. Bobby Doerr retired with a career .288 batting average, 2,042 hits, 1,094 runs scored and 1,247 RBI. The Veterans Committee elected Robert Pershing Doerr to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986.
