Willie Keeler

Willie Keeler was a baseball player who played from 1892 to 1910, primarily for the Baltimore Orioles and Brooklyn Dodgers in the National League and the New York Yankees in the American League. Keeler was an outfielder known for his ability to "hit them where they ain't", compiling a .341 batting average over his career. He twice led his league in batting average, and three times in hits. He was one of the smaller players to play the game, standing approximately 5'7" and weighing 140 pounds, resulting in his nickname of "Wee Willie."
