In a 16-season career, Galan posted a .287 batting average with 100 home runs and 830 RBI in 1742 games played. Galan played in three World Series, but his teams never won. In 1935, he became the first full time player to make 649 plate appearances and not hit into a double play, though he did hit into a triple play. Augie was often injured (he broke his knee in 1940) and had a deformed arm from a childhood injury. His knee injury was what eventually made Galan give up batting from the right side of the plate.
