Pittsburgh Pirates

All Time Shortstop

Honus Wagner

1897 - 1917

2792 games, 101 home runs, .327 batting average

"Aside from Wagner's great artistic achievements, he has additional merits that entitle him to special distinction. He has a quiet, unassuming disposition and a remarkable native modesty; is absolutely correct in his living habits; and is a model of department on and off the field. Therefore in all ways Wagner represents the greatest development of the model ball player. May his shadow never grow less!"

Reach Guide, 1905

One of five players originally elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936, "The Flying Dutchman" is widely regarded as the best shortstop to ever play the game. He won eight N.L. batting crowns and ranks among the Pirates’ top 10 in 11 offensive categories. His number 33 was formally retired in 1952 and a statue of his likeness currently stands in front of PNC Park.
