Joe Hauser


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: “Joe” batted .323 as a rookie in 1922. In ’24 he led the A’s with 27 home runs (second in the AL to Babe Ruth’s 46) and 115 RBIs. A great career was coalescing, but then at spring training in 1925, Hauser broke his leg and kneecap. Recovery was slow in ’26, and after a lost ’27, Hauser blames teammate Ty Cobb for messing with his batting technique in ’28. Joe was out of the majors after ’29. Greatness came in the minors. For Baltimore in ’30, Joe cracked 63 homers. For Minneapolis in ’33, Joe slugged 69 round trippers. He is the first professional player to hit 60 or more homers in two seasons.
