Woody English played most of his career with Chicago Cubs, debuting in 1927 where he split his career between Shortstop and Third.

English was a good defensive player, finishing in the top-five in Defensive bWAR five times, four of which were in the top five. English was not a power hitter, but his hitting was solid batting over .300 twice (1930 & 1931) where he had 200 Hits both years.  He helped the Cubs win two National League Pennants, and was fourth in MVP voting in 1931.

English began to struggle in 1934, and he was shipped off to the Brooklyn Dodgers a couple years later.  With the Cubs, English batted .291 with 1,248 Hits.
