Possibly one of the most underrated baseball players of the 1910s, three-time RBI title winner, Bobby Veach shared the outfield with Ty Cobb, Harry Heilmann and later Sam Crawford; all three Hall of Famers. 

Veach was a good player in his own right, as along with his three RBI titles he was also a two-time league leader in Doubles and in 1919, he led the AL in Hits.  He was also an above-average fielder, who as a Tiger had a Slash Line of .311/.370/.444 with 1,859 Hits.
