And in related news, with his final clout of last season, Max Kepler now has exactly one-fourth of the home runs hit by players born in Germany -- 101 of 404.
He's currently fourth in RBIs, needing 145 to surpass Mike Blower and Bill Keuhne and tie Glenn Hubbard atop the list. He's third in bWAR at 12.50, needing 5.5 to catch 1900s pitcher Pretzels Getzein and 6.72 to catch Hubbard.
Ron Gardenhire remains a distant 10th in HR, with four, and 15th in bWAR, with 0.82. He's the leader in wins among managers at 1200, however, exceeding three guys born in the 1800s who totaled 59.
One of the other managers was Chris Von Der Ahe, who went 3-14 as manager during the time he owned the St. Louis Browns (the ones that became the Cardinals). His most noteworthy contribution to the game may be that he's considered the first to introduce hot dogs at the ballpark, so I guess he wasn't the wurst guy in the world.
