Fred Graf posted an excellent batting line of .400/.625/.600 and committed no errors in four games with the 1913 Browns. However, that was the end of his major league career. The Browns' regular third baseman during 1911-19 was Jimmy Austin. Graf, who had previously played three years in the minors, began an eight-year stint in 1913 with the Chattanooga Lookouts, and thereafter played several more years in the minor leagues, for a total of 16 seasons. He managed in the minors in 1926-27.
Fred is the only major leaguer, through 2019, with the last name Graf, although there have been several with the last name Graff. Fred, in fact, was known as Graff during his playing days.
