 Biographical Information
"Nick Kahl, the keystone guardian, is not a swift runner but he hits consistently and plays ball all the time." - Sporting Life of May 21, 1910, when Nick was with Grand Rapids. That day's issue showed Kahl hitting clean-up in a variety of recent box scores
Nick Kahl played one season in the major leagues, getting 142 plate appearances. He was primarily a second baseman.
Kahl was born in Coulterville, IL, 50 miles southeast of St. Louis, MO. He played minor league ball a number of seasons before coming to the majors in 1905. In 1904 he had been with Colorado Springs, for whom he hit .304.
Kahl played the same position as did Nap Lajoie, the star of the Cleveland team, but Nap was seriously injured in 1905 and thus limited to 65 games. In addition to Kahl, George Stovall (normally a first baseman) also filled in for significant numbers of games at second base.
After his time in the majors, Kahl played minor league ball through 1915. From 1911-15 he was with Quincy, in his home state of Illinois.
