McMillan

Shortstop, 1951-1960. Inducted 1971.

Two time All-Star and recipient of 3 Gold Gloves, including the inaugural shortstop award.  By all accounts a superb defensive shortstop, at various times he led the league in double plays, assists and putouts at shortstop, fielding percentage, range factor, and defensive WAR.  Of particular note was his ability to read (and play) balls on a bounce.
