En route to the Cincinnati Reds
Hall of Fame, Goodman led the NL in triples his first
two seasons, set a since-broken Reds' season homer mark (30 in 1938), and played
in two All-Star Games and World Series
. In the 1939 Series opener, right fielder
Goodman and centerfielder Harry Craft
let Charlie Keller's fly ball drop between
them for a triple; Keller soon scored the Yankees' winning run.
