swinging the bat in 1933, they seemed unbeatable. However, the Pirates finished
second in the National League that year to the New York Giants. Pittsburgh out-hit New
York .285 to .263 for the season, but the big difference between winning and losing
the pennant was the pitching. The Pirates had a good pitching staff, with their
top thrower, LARRY FRENCH, placing second in the league in games pitched, with
an ERA of 2.72 and a solid 18 wins. And the dependable Heine Meine finished
third in winning percentage (.652) and had a win-loss record of 15 and 8. But
Pittsburgh lacked a real stopper, like New York's Carl Hubbell, who led the league in
wins (23), shutouts (10) and ERA (1.66). As a team, the Pittsburgh Pirates out-slugged
the league. With the legendary HONUS WAGNER as batting coach, seven players hit
over .300 for the year. Wagner had finished out his 21-year career (1897-1917) with a
lifetime batting average of .329. He had won eight National League batting titles and
averaged 83 runs and 82 RBI per year. Wagner was instrumental in the development of
shortstop ARKY VAUGHAN. A career .318 hitter, Vaughan batted .314 in 1933, led
the league in triples and finished among the top five in slugging average (.478),
total bases (274) and RBI (97). PIE TRAYNOR, the great contact hitter, batted
.304 and had another golden year with his glove, leading the National League in
putouts (176) at his position. The popular third baseman became player-manager for the
Pirates in 1934, and continued on as manager until 1939. The WANER
Brothers were one of baseball's most potent brother combinations. PAUL
was the oldest and the better hitter, but not my much. LLOYD was a consistent
.300 hitter, and though he struggled with a .276 batting average in 1933, he would
play 14 years in the outfield with Paul and the Pirates. Paul Waner was an awesome
player at the plate, with a .309 average for the year, while amassing 191 hits, 282
total bases, 101 runs-scored and 16 triples. He completed his career with a total of
3,152 hits. Second baseman TONY PIET had a great year with the Pirates,
finishing third in the National League with a .323 batting average. Centerfielder
FRED LINDSTROM batted .310 and placed third in the league with 39 doubles.
TOMMY THEVENOW, a utility infielder, hit a .312 for the year. Fine condition.
Framed in Gallery of History style: 32½x28.
