    I have nothing for Catcher or 1B
    Roy Smalley could help on the infield, too. And Tiny Bonham won over 100 games for the Yankees and Pirates back in the 40's.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Pee Wee Reese finished in the top 10 in MVP voting eight times (!).

    Pud "The Little Steam Engine" Galvin was a HOF pitcher who stood tall at 5'8".

    Minnie Minoso hasn't been mentioned yet, has he?

    In baseball 5'10 is short, if we were going to declare anything under 5'9 as short the lions share of players will be from 100 years ago and quite a few unfamiliar names.
