Playing at First Base, Trosky played simultaneously as Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Hank Greenberg, so it is easy to see why he never was an All-Star. Trosky nevertheless was a top power hitter in his own right, having six 25 Home Run years in a seven-year period (1934-40), with the first six campaigns exceeding 100 RBI. His best year was 1936, where he blasted 42 Home Runs with an AL-leading 162 RBIs while also batting .343.
Trosky’s career fell apart in 1938 when he began suffering migraines that impacted his vision. He retired in 1941, though he had a brief comeback with the White Sox in 1944.
With Cleveland, Trosky smashed 216 Home Runs with a .313/.379/.551 Slash Line. Later, in 1951, he was part of the Indians' inaugural Hall of Fame Class.
