Happy Reds birthday, Babe Herman!

Herman

June 26, 1903

If Babe Ruth was the Sultan of Swat, Babe Herman was the Tycoon of Triples. He hit 110 three-baggers in his career, including a league-leading 19 for the Reds in 1932. He was no slouch with the longball either, collecting 181 round trippers in 13 seasons. Herman appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot twelve times between 1942 and 1960, but never received more than 5.7% of the vote.
