Wagner was a wide-ranging shortstop who used his exceptionally big feet to block
baserunners. He had career highs of .274, 68 RBI, and 75 runs scored for the World
Champion 1912 Red Sox. He was a Red Sox coach from 1921 until 1930, when he replaced
as manager. Carrigan had brought the Red Sox in last the three previous
seasons, and Wagner fared no better.
