Fielding and Defense
Dodge was a third baseman, but also played short stop and second base early in his career as a Philadelphia Phillie. After he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for Beals Becker, Dodge played all of his games at third base. In 1913, Dodge was third in errors committed by a third baseman in the National League.
