Craft

Outfielder, 1937-1942.  Inducted 1963.

In 1940, played superb defense in center field for the eventual World Champions, though he didn’t play much of a role in the postseason.  That same year, he set a since broken NL record for outfield fielding percentage and hit for the cycle.   Thanks in part to World War II, spent his entire career with the Reds.
