Happy Easter from the PTR

Remember when I did that Animal nickname post in February?

If not...go check it out.  I got some cool cards I showed off and put some quality thought into it.
Today's post is short and simple.

Here comes Rabbit Maranville hopping down the bunny trail. Hippity hoppity, Easter's here today!!!!!!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday today.

Walter "Rabbit" Maranville was a shortstop who played in the early 20th century.  He has the 8th most triples all time (177) for players who played their careers after 1900 and has an all time putout record for all shortstops with 5,139.  He played 3 seasons with the Pirates from 1921-1924 and was inducted into the baseball hall of fame in 1954 with a near 83% vote.

The Springfield, Massachusets native got his nickname for his tiny stature as he stood only 5ft5 and weighed 155 pounds.

The 2012 Panini Cooperstown card was purchased at a mall card show last month for $1.
