    Claude Rossman

    Rossman was the first baseman for Tiger pennant-winners in 1907 and 1908, adept at laying down a bunt so that Ty Cobb could streak from first to third. However, a peculiar emotional quirk shortened his career: he couldn't throw the ball when he became excited. Runners would lead off first to draw a throw from the pitcher, then run to second when Rossman froze. (JK)
