American League Home Run Champion: 1901
American League RBI Champion: 1901, 1904
American League Batting Champion: 1901, 1903, 1904, 1910
.339 lifetime batting average
.467 SLG%
13th all time in total hits (3242)
1599 RBIs (31st all time)
6x league leader in double plays
Was hoping against hope that he did the impossible and fell to me at 56th (my next selection). Nap just might be the second-best second baseman of all-time after Rogers Hornsby.
