Charlie Hollocher (June 11, 1896 – August 14, 1940) was born Charles Jacob Hollocher in St. Louis, Missouri. He was a shortstop for the Chicago Cubs from 1918 to 1924.

He helped the Cubs win the National League Pennant in 1918. In that same season he led the National League in Games (131), At Bats (509), Hits (161), Total Bases (202), Singles (130) and Runs Created (76).

He led the National League in At Bats per Strikeout (118.4) in 1922. To this day it is still the Cubs' single season record.

He left the Cubs in August 1923 due to depression. He tried a comeback in 1924, but was unable to complete the full season.

He killed himself in Frontenac, Missouri, on August 14, 1940, when he shot himself in the throat. He had suffered from depression most of his adult life.[citation needed]
