Second baseman, 1952-1959, 1964. Coach, 1964-1965. Inducted 1965.
Selected as an All-Star in three seasons during his Reds career, Temple served as a successful leadoff hitter for a strong hitting 1950s team. He regularly ranked among the league leaders in walks, hits, and (therefore) times on base while displaying good instincts on the base paths. Over his career, he walked more often than he struck out (with a lifetime 1.92 walk-to-strikeout ratio) and maintained a 71% rate of successful base stealing.
