Harry Elliott (b. 1923) played in parts of two seasons (1953 and 1955) for the Cardinals. He had 45 career hits, 2 home runs and an average of .256. Take a look at his 1954 numbers in the minors. 224 hits and a .350 average. Had he been able to translate those to the majors, that definitely would have been an MVP caliber year, for sure.
