February 23

1934 Goudey #74 - Bob Boken

On this day in 1908, Bob Boken was born.

Bob may have played for the majority of his career with the Washington Senators, but he played the most games with the Chicago White Sox. After a little over a season with Washington, Boken was traded to Chicago for Red Kress in the middle of the 1934 season.

While Bob's opportunities were on the rise with Chicago, his batting average and on base percentage decreased dramatically. Boken may have only played two seasons worth in the majors, but he played seventeen seasons in the minors, finishing up in 1947 in the Sunset League.
