Playing all 14 of his Major League seasons with the Boston Red Sox, Bobby Doerr began his career in 1937 and became the permanent Second Baseman the season after.  Throughout his career, he was considered to be among the better defensive infielders of the game.  In 1941, Doerr would be chosen for the first of what would be nine All-Star Games, and for his time, he was one of the better hitting Second Basemen.

In six seasons, Doerr would bat over.290, and he would showcase decent power with nine years with at least 15 Home Runs.  Six of those years, Doerr would have triple digits in Runs Batted In, and in 1944, he won the Slugging Title with a .528 mark.  Doerr would have eight years where he had accrued MVP votes, and in two years (1944 & 1946), he would finish in the top ten, peaking with a third-place tally in 1946.

He played until 1951 and retired at 33 due to spinal issues.  Over his career, Doerr would have 2,042 Hits with 233 Home Runs.

In 1986, Doerr would be chosen to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veteran’s Committee.
