Frank Schulte would play 13 of his 15 seasons with the Chicago Cubs, where he played Rightfield and was part of the Cubs dynasty that won the National League Pennant in 1906, 1907, 1908, and 1910 and the World Series in 1907 and 1908.  While Schulte was not the star of those teams, he was undoubtedly a contributor, as he batted .321 in those four World Series appearances.

Schulte's best season occurred after, wherein 1911, he won the MVP, and led the league in Home Runs (21), Runs Batted In (107), and Slugging Percentage (.534).  He would also become the first player in baseball history to have 20 Doubles, Triples, Home Runs, and Stolen Bases in a season.

He never had a year like that again, but overall he would accrue 1,590 for the Cubs with a .272 Batting Average, which is certainly decent.
