Charles Lincoln "Buck" Herzog (July 9, 1885 – September 4, 1953) was an American infielder and manager in Major League Baseball who played for four National League clubs between 1908 and 1920. He played for the New York Giants, the Boston Braves, the Cincinnati Reds, and the Chicago Cubs.
In 1912 Herzog set a World Series record, since tied and broken by a number of players, of 12 hits in one Series.
In 1916 he set an unusual record that still stands, by playing 98 home games in one season. He achieved this by playing for the Reds (50 games at home, 29 road) then the Giants (48 and 29).
Recently his carriage house was saved from demolition and moved to the center of Ridgely.
