Rube Oldring: Look at his little hat!
Outfielder Reuben "Rube" Oldring was considered by at least one author to be the finest wearer of hats on the entire 1911 Philadelphia Athletics ball club.
Oldring also shared the field with ballists of similarly excellent nomenclature: Ossee Schrecengost, Frank "Home Run" Baker, Stuffy McInnis, Amos "Lightning" Strunk, Bris Lord and Chief Bender.
Perhaps Rube's finest accomplishment was being overshadowed by Home Run Baker's performance in the 1911 World Series.
