40. Mike Boddicker

Rod Carew called Mike Boddicker’s pitch assortment, "Little League Slop."  The right-hander didn't have much of a fastball, had a strange change-up, but he could throw what he had from different angles.  That skill allowed him to progress well past “Little League.”

38. Del Pratt

Had there been a Rookie of the Year Award in 1912, there is a good chance that Del Pratt of the St. Louis Browns would have won it.  That year he batted .302 with 172 Hits, and he was close to that in 1913 with 175 Hits and a .296 Average.
