Center fielder, 1902-1906. Inducted 1998.
Began his career with the Giants as a pitcher but converted permanently to the outfield after he joined the Reds. Hit over .300 in each full season he played in Cincinnati, with his best season coming in 1905. That year he led the league in hits, doubles, triples, RBIs, total bases, batting average, slugging percentage, and OPS. Came one home run shy of winning the NL triple crown. Seymour still holds the Reds franchis records for career batting average, with .332, and single season batting average, with .377.
