  • The only member of the Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance infield left out of Franklin P. Adams's poem, Steinfeldt was a reliable third baseman with an unusually powerful arm. He originally hoped for a theatre|theatrical career but did so well in a baseball game put on by his touring troupe that he switched to the diamond. – Jack Kavanagh, sports historian and writer
