Charles Lincoln Herzog (1885-1953) was loved and hated by John McGraw: “I hate his guts, but I want him on my club.” Traded 3x and brought back to the Giants twice, this most versatile of infielders played with a fire matched by few of his era. His 1,493 career games were equally divided between 2nd, 3rd and shortstop.

  • Herzog’s 12 hits in the 1912 Series stood as the record for half a century
  • Always a shrewd negotiator, signed a record $12K minor league contract in 1920
