Elmer Flick joined the Blues as a free agent in 1902 and was one of the top two offensive players on the team from then until 1907. In 1906 he not only lead the Naps, but the entire American League in at bats, runs, triples and steals. His 22 triples that season were sandwiched between two years of 18 triples, which were also enough to lead the league. Each of these seasons are in the Indians top ten all time for triples. He is also in the top five in career triples as an Indian and top ten in career steals.
Along with being in the Indians Hall of Fame (class of 1963) and being voted into the Major League Hall of Fame by the Veteran’s Committee, Flick has one more claim to fame. Early in Ty Cobb’s career, the Tigers offered him straight up for Elmer Flick, but the Indians said no. While Flick did have a moderately successful career, it was nothing compared to Cobb, who played until 1928, amassing over 4,000 hits.
