With his burly body and strong arms, Leon "Goose" Goslin forged a reputation as a powerful clutch hitter. He spearheaded his teams to five American League pennants in a 12-year span - three with the Senators and two with the Tigers. He drove in 100 or more runs on 11 occasions and hit .300 or better 11 times, including a league-leading .379 in 1928. He compiled a .316 lifetime average and recorded 2,735 hits, adding 37 more in World Series play. he amassed 248 career homers despite playing most of his career in cavernous Griffith Stadium in Washington.
In 1930, he was traded straight up for another Hall of Famer: Heinie Manush.
