Edd Roush (May 8, 1893 - March 21, 1988) was a left-handed Major League Baseball player. He played the majority of his career in center field.
Roush made his Major League debut on August 20, 1913 for the Chicago White Sox. He switched to the fledgling Federal League in 1914 and spent a season each with the Indianapolis Hoosiers and the Newark Peppers. He returned to the Majors in 1916 and split the season between the New York Giants and the Cincinnati Reds. With the Reds from 1917 to 1926, Roush never batted below .321 and was an instrumental part of the team's World Series championship in 1919. He won the batting title in 1917 and 1919. His best career year in batting average was 1921, when he batted .352.
He also led the leagues in Slugging average (.455) in 1918, in Doubles (41) in 1923, and in Triples (21) in 1924.
Roush played for the New York Giants again from 1927 until 1929 and rejoined the Cincinnati Reds for a single season in 1931 before retiring. He sat out the 1930 season over a salary dispute.
Roush finished his career with a .323 average, 268 stolen bases and 182 triples. He never struck out more than 25 times in a season and had 30 inside-the-park home runs.
Roush, who used a massive 46-ounce Louisville Slugger, claims that he never broke a bat in his big league career.
Roush was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962. He is also a member of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame, being inducted in 1960.
