Phil Weintraub

(1907 - 1987)

Philip Weintraub was a baseball player who holds the record for the second most runs batted in (RBIs) a single game (11). He was primarily a reserve outfielder, though he played first base in the last few years of his career. He batted .295 overall for his career, with a .398 on base percentage. Through 2006, he has the 4th-best career batting average of all Jewish major league baseball players, behind Hank Greenberg, Buddy Myer, and Lou Boudreau. Blessed with an excellent eye and bat control, he walked 232 times in his career while striking out only 182 times. He bounced around the league but spent the most time with the New York Giants.
