First baseman, 1919-1924. Inducted 1966.

After playing arguably his best seasons with the Dodgers, Daubert was traded to the Reds early in the 1919 season.  He went on to be a major contributor for the 1919 World Championship team, hitting .276 with 12 triples, and was selected to his seventh consecutive Baseball Magazine all-star lineup.  In 1922, he led the league in triples and in several defensive categories for his play at first base.  He served as Reds captain for the duration of his time on the team and his 392 career sacrifice hits still stands as second in Major League history.
