Dick Bartell


A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: Everybody knows it when the Phillies Dick Bartell is on the scene. “Rowdy Richard” is an aggressive bench jockey who fights umpires and opponents alike for every advantage. Took over Glenn Wright’s SS position on Pirates in 1929 and batted .302. Climbed to .320 next year but was moved to Philly for Thevenow and Willoughby. Last season with Quakers established himself as NL’s best all around shortstop batting .308 in 614 at bats, with 189 hits, and 48 two baggers. Dick is a sure-handed gloveman and a good bunter. He hits behind the runner well and seldom strikes out.
