Honus Wagner played in the National League for the time period of 1897-1917 for Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936 recognized him for his outstanding efforts.

The year of 1908 was a great year in the history of baseball. In total, he won eight battles. Most of the people consider Wagner to be one of the greatest shortstop ever.
