1922 American Caramel 240 Series ('91 reprint): Frankie Frisch, New York Giants, 2B/3B
Before the Gas House Gang, there was Frankie Frisch with the New York Giants for 8 years. In only his fourth MLB season, Frisch helped lead the Giants to their 2nd consecutive World Series championship in 1922--and would lead them to two more appearances in 1923 and 1924. As a Giant (1919-1926), Frisch made the league top 3 in Runs ('21,'23,'24), Hits ('21,'23,'24), Total Bases ('23), Triples ('23), RBI ('23), Stolen Bases ('20, '21, '22, '26), and Singles ('23). Defensively, Frisch would also lead the league in major categories at 2B and 3B. After the 1926 season, Frisch was traded with Jimmy Ring to the Cardinals for Rogers Hornsby.
