Charles Leonard Gehringer (1903-1993) played 19 seasons with the Detroit Tigers (1924-1942) and is considered one of the greatest second baseman in history. His consistency at the plate and at second earned him the nickname Mechanical Man as Gehringer would bat over .300 in 13 seasons and had over 200 hits in seven campaigns. A quiet man by nature, Gehringer made his noise between the lines batting .320 for his career with 2,839 hits, 1,774 runs, 1,427 RBI and a fielding percentage of .376. Charlie had a career year in 1937 when he led the AL in games, plate appearances, runs, hits, doubles, triples and stolen bases and captured the American League’s Most Valuable Player award. Gehringer appeared in every inning of the first six All-Star games (his only six appearances), won three American League pennants and was a member of the 1935 World Series champions. Charles Leonard Gehringer was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.
