Doc Cramer


A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: You can use your fountain pen to write in centerfielder “Doc” on your lineup card, because he rarely misses a day. “Doc” led the Junior Circuit in at-bats with the A’s in 1933, ’34, ’35, and again with the Red Sox in ’38 and ’40, when he also led the league with 200 hits. From ’37-’39 he struck out less than 20 times each season. Nicknamed “Flit” after a popular insecticide—because in centerfield he is death to flies, he dependably patrols the greensward. He bats leadoff and knocks scads of singles. The New Jersey native is 6’ 2”, bats left and throws right.
