Charlie Gehringer's career stats
Charlie Gehringer
No. 2 retired June 12, 1983

not only the best fielding second baseman of his time, but he also hit
for power and average. Ty Cobb, who managed the Tigers during
Gehringer’s first three seasons, called him, aside from Eddie Collins,
"the greatest second baseman (he) ever saw."

during World War II and another season lost to injury to capture two
MVP awards and a pair of World Series titles.
