In 1924, Traynor's .320 batting average helped propel the Pirates in their World Series victory over the Washington Senators. His powerful arm and sparkling defensive plays made him an outstanding 3rd. Baseman.

The Pirates were the world champs for the second time in 2 years. In 1969, Hall of Famer, Pie Traynor was voted by the sports writers as the top 3rd. Baseman of all-time.
