He became an All-Star for the first and only time that year and finished 3rd in MVP voting. Vosmik batted .300 or better six times during his 13-year career and led the AL a second time in hits (201) in 1938. Joe played the outfield for the Indians (1930-1936), the St. Louis Browns (1937), the Boston Red Sox (1938-1941) and the Washington Senators (1944), posting a .979 career fielding percentage.
