Though he never hit more than 12 homers, third baseman Frank Baker led the American League in homes for four straight seasons during the deadball era. A member of the famed Philadelphia Athletics $100,000 infield — along with 1B Stuffy McInnis, 2B Eddie Collins, and SS Jack Berry — Baker was a star of his era. A .300 hitter for six seasons, Baker had three years with more than 100 RBU
