Product Description
This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Sports & Entertainment – Honus Wagner. He was one of five of the original inductees in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.

Johannes Peter "Honus" Wagner was a shortstop for 21 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1897 to 1917, almost entirely for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wagner won 8 batting titles, tied for the most in National League history with Tony Gwynn. He also led the league in slugging 6 times, and in stolen bases 5 times. Wagner was nicknamed "The Flying Dutchman" due to his superb speed and German heritage.
One of the first 5 players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Wagner is considered by some baseball historians to be the greatest all-around player in the history of the game.

A versatile athlete who played every position but catcher during his 21-year career, Wagner was the dominant player of his time, capturing 8 batting titles over a 12-year stretch and leading the National League in numerous other statistical categories as well during the first decade of the 20th century.

The Honus Wagner T-206 baseball card printed by the Piedmont Cigarette Company was purchased for $2.8 million by Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick. In 1909, the cards were distributed along with tobacco and Wagner asked for his to be withdrawn because he was a nonsmoker and didn’t want to set a bad example for children.
