The only member of the Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance infield left out of Franklin P.
Adams's poem, Steinfeldt was a reliable third baseman with an unusually powerful
arm. He originally hoped for a theatrical career but did so well in a baseball game
put on by his touring troupe that he switched to the diamond. After eight years with
the Reds, he was traded to the Cubs in 1906 and responded with his best season, leading
the NL in hits (176) and RBI (83) and batting .327.
