Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hazen Shirley "Kiki" Cuyler was a Major League Baseball right fielder from 1921 until 1938. His nickname "Kiki" reportedly came from the way in which he once stuttered his own last name. He was born in Harrisville, Michigan. Cuyler broke into the big leagues in 1921 with the Pittsburgh Pirates and became a fixture in the lineup in 1924. Playing for the Pirates, Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and Brooklyn Dodgers over the next decade and a half, Cuyler established a reputation as an outstanding hitter with great speed. He regularly batted .350 or higher and finished with a .321 lifetime batting average. In 1925 Cuyler combined this great hitting with 18 home runs and 102 RBI. Cuyler's Pirates won the World Series that year, the only time in his career he would be part of a championship team
