Description:
Charles Dallan Maxvill (born February 18, 1939 in Granite City, Illinois) is a former shortstop, coach and general manager in Major League Baseball. A graduate of St. Louis' Washington University, where he earned a degree in electrical engineering, Maxvill signed a professional baseball contract in 1960 with the hometown St. Louis Cardinals.

Maxvill appeared in 1,423 regular-season games for the Cardinals (1962–72), Oakland Athletics (1972–73; 1974–75) and Pittsburgh Pirates (1973–74). He batted and threw right-handed.

A smooth fielder but a notoriously weak hitter, Maxvill batted only .217 with 6 home runs over his 14-year major league career. He appeared in five World Series - three (1964, 1967-68) with the Cardinals and two (1972 and 1974) with the Athletics. All but the '68 Cardinals won the world championship - in that series, Maxvill went 0-for-22. In the 1964 World Series, which the Cardinals won over the New York Yankees, Maxvill caught Bobby Richardson's pop-up for the final out. His overall World Series batting record was 7-for-61, a .115 percentage. Both of those figures are record lows for a position player.

Although comfortably above the hitting prowess of the legendary Casey Wise, Maxvill does hold the National League record, through the 2006 season, for fewest hits for a batter playing in at least 150 games: 80, achieved in 1970, in 152 games, 399 at-bats, just barely over the Mendoza line at .201.
