Charles Augustus Alperman (November 11, 1879 – December 25, 1942) was a Major league baseball player born in Etna, Pennsylvania. He played mainly at second baseman for the Brooklyn Superbas from 1906 to 1909.[1] In 1907, he tied for the league lead in triples. He was also in the top three in hit by pitch in 1906 and 1907. In 1909, he batted 442 times, while only receiving two walks, which is the lowest single-season walk ratio recorded in the twentieth century, of players with 300 or more plate appearances.[2]

Whitey died at the age of 63 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was buried at the Mount Royal Cemetery in Glenshaw, Pennsylvania.[3]
