Catcher 1932-41

— Red Legends of Crosley Field, Tom Tsuchiya Sculptor —

Even more legendary than Ernie Lombardi's pronounced profile were his blistering line drives. Using an interlocking grip and one of the league's heaviest bats, the Crosley-era catcher hit better than .300 seven times for the Reds and remains the only catcher in major league history with two batting titles. On the eve of Cincinnati's back-to-back pennants in 1939-40, Lombardi became the first Red to win an MVP award, hitting a league-best .342 with 19 home runs and 95 RBIs in 1938. The eight-time All-Star was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1958 and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1986.
