RE: The story and career of George (SNUFFY) Stirnweiss
Again in 1948 with only five errors tallied against him in 141 games, he set a major league fielding record with a .903 average.
This is quite a record for a player who never was even placed in nomination for the Baseball Hall of Fame, much less elected.
