Quite possibly the single best non-banned player who is outside of the Hall of Fame. In 1915, our only question was the rank order between him and George Davis; we were going to elect both.

He's also the subject of maybe the worst song on Abbey Road, "Oh, Dahlen!"

No way, Chris. "Charlie Maxwell's Silver Flint Hammer" is one of the worst post- Hard Day's Night Beatles tunes, let alone on this record.

Bill Dahlen may be the best deceased ballplayer buried in an unmarked grave. His biographer Lyle Spatz a couple years ago sent email notice (which I don't find now) of his missing or inadequate marker, inquiring for interest in designing and funding an appropriate marker.
