Paul WANER (HOF)

Biography

A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: Pittsburgh’s Paul Waner is a little man with a big stick. In the league for 7 years he has not batted lower than .322. He has collected more than 200 hits in a season 5 times and he totaled 237 safeties in 1927 when he won the NL batting title with an average of .380. Standing only 5’8” and weighing a mere 153 pounds, the left-handed Waner does not homer often but strikes the ball with authority and racks up ringing doubles and triples in bunches. His reserve status is an indication of the strength of the NL lineup that will take the field on July 6 in Chicago’s Century of Progress game. Waner’s younger brother Lloyd is also a star outfielder for the Pirates.
