The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Each campaign since 1909 this left-fielder has done the job for the Brooklyn club and the fans know it. He even seems to get better as he gets older: all three of the 200 hit seasons he’s had in his career have come with him being 34 years old or more. He can still smack the ball, especially a curve. As good as a hitter he is, Zack is known as an even better fielder. He can glide after fly balls like nobody’s business and has an arm that keeps baserunners in check.
