Johannes Peter "Honus" Wagner (pronounced /ˈhɒnəs ˈwæɡnər/; February 24, 1874 – December 6, 1955), nicknamed The Flying Dutchman due to his superb speed and German heritage, was an American Major League Baseball shortstop who played in the National League from 1897 to 1917, almost entirely for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wagner won eight batting titles, tied for the most in NL history with Tony Gwynn. He also led the league in slugging six times, and in stolen bases five times.


In 1936, the Baseball Hall of Fame inducted Wagner as one of the first five members. He received the second-highest vote total, behind Ty Cobb and tied with Babe Ruth.  Although Cobb is frequently cited as the greatest player of the dead-ball era, some contemporaries regarded Wagner as the better all-around player, and most baseball historians consider Wagner to be the greatest shortstop ever. Cobb himself called Wagner "maybe the greatest star ever to take the diamond."[2]

HONUS WAGNER HOUSE, 605 Beechwood Avenue, Carnegie, PA. 4 BR, 2 BA, can be single family home or two unit multi. $134,900. www.royalmile.biz/honus 

LIVE WITH A LEGEND! For sale is Honus Wagner's house, the Pittsburgh Pirates legend, built in 1917-18 to his specifications at 605 Beechwood Ave, Carnegie, PA. Wagner spent the remainder of his life here, until his death in 1955. The house itself is worthy of the Hall of Fame with hardwood floors throughout, three gas fireplaces and exposed beams. There are four large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a formal dining room, and a large family room in this solid brick three story home. A front porch and rear deck add to the beauty. The back yard is spacious and beautiful. The detached two car garage has an attic and basement. The house could be a single family home or a multi-unit investment property. This is ideal for someone looking to live in one unit and rent the other, while fixing the house up for future sale or future conversion to a single family home or a historical property of some type. Without any historical significance, this is a great buy on a fabulous home or multi-unit. With the Honus Wagner history, it makes for an OUTSTANDING opportunity and future potential. 

It is quite possible that Honus Wagner was one of the most complete players of all time. His name is often evoked in conversations about the best players ever. He was the most dominant player of his era, winning a NL record 8 batting titles (since tied by Tony Gwynn). During the Deadball Era, home runs were much more of a rarity than they are today. It was not uncommon for totals of somewhere around ten to top the league. In fact, Wagner's diminutive teammate Tommy Leach led the National League in this category in 1902 with a whopping 6 (it must be remembered that many ballparks had capacious dimensions with a few centerfield walls more than 500 feet from home plate). Therefore, using four-base hits as the standard to determine the slugging ability of players from this period would be inaccurate and unfair. This leaves us with two other yardsticks with which to measure a player's power: slugging average and triples. Wagner led the league in slugging six times and, as already mentioned, he has the third highest tally of three-baggers in history. It is fair to say that, when one puts these data into context, Wagner was probably the premier power hitter of his league for much of his career. His speed cannot be ignored, for he was the NL's top base thief five times. One must also take his consistently high batting averages into consideration, as he finished with a .327 career mark. And, defensively, he played almost everywhere several times (including two appearances on the mound) with decent results, so it must be said that he was a very versatile fielder. His range was above average and he possessed a strong arm. Honus Wagner was a true five-tool player.
