Gee Walker Baseball Center fielder

Gee walker

Gerald Holmes "Gee" Walker (March 19, 1908 – March 20, 1981) was a Major League Baseball outfielder. During his fifteen year career, he played with the Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox, Washington Senators, Cleveland Indians, and Cincinnati Reds. He played in 1,784 Major League games over 15 seasons with a career batting average of .294, 1,991 hits, 223 stolen bases, and 124 home runs. Born in Gulfport, Mississippi, Walker attended the University of Mississippi and was a member of the Class of 1930. Walker played both football and baseball at Ole Miss and has been inducted into both the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame. In the major leagues, he was known for stealing bases, finishing nine times among the top ten in the category. He accompanied the Tigers to two World Series, in 1934 and 1935. Gee — a fiery competitor and a clown — became a favorite in Detroit. His antics earned him the nickname the "The Madman from Mississippi." He batted .300 or better in five of his first seven seasons. Though he was regularly among the league leaders in stolen bases, he also developed a reputation for being inattentive and overzealous on the basepaths.
