Never batted below .321 in any of his 10 seasons with the Reds, and won the batting title twice in that time. Also renowned for his outfield arm. A key member of the 1919 team that won the Reds’ first World Series against the so-called “Black Sox,” Roush maintained that the Reds would have won the Series even if their opponents had played to their full capabilities. Inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962.
