T206 Brooklyn Dodgers: Harry Pattee

Second baseman Harry Pattee was another one of those early Brooklyn Superbas players to spend only one season in Majors with the big club. In 1908 he played in 80 games and stole a team high 24 bases, but batted a dismal .216. Of course, the Brooklyn team only batted a collective .213, so he was slightly better than average.

After his short professional career he went on to coach the Brown University Baseball team from 1912 to 1921, and had a career managerial record there of 117-42-1 for a .736 winning percentage. In 1971 Pattee was elected into the Brown University Hall of Fame.

The Harry Pattee T206 card gets special recognition for being the only Dodger card in the set that is horizontal.
