John J. McGraw says: “Roger Hornsby is my choice for second base, because of his many evidences of greatness. There has been so much talk about Hornsby as a batter that attention seems to have been diverted from his second-base play and base running. This wonderful Texan is a much greater fielder and base stealer than the fans seem to appreciate. He has everything—is almost the perfect ball player. There is no hesitation on my part in selecting Hornsby.”
