Heinie Wagner


Ty Cobb says: “Charlie [Heinie] Wagner, of the Boston Red Sox, is still another man considered a star by Big Leaguers who has made himself a top-notcher with his brains and not through natural ability. Ball players rated Wagner to be the most valuable man in the Boston infield in the year that the Red Sox won the championship of the world, yet Yerkes and Gardner had more natural ability than the German, I think. But it was his fast thinking that stopped many a rally by opponents, and he was the man who held the infield together and started most of the plays that retired the opposing side, for which the Red Sox were famous that season. I consider Wagner to be the second best short stop in the American League, with Jack Barry shading him just a little.”
