Lamb made it to the big leagues at the end of 1920. In nine games, he hit .375. He was a utility player for the entire season after that, but his batting average slipped to just .254. The Western League's Tulsa Oilers acquired his contract in January, and he never played in the majors again.
However, Lamb thrived down in the high minors. His 68 doubles in 1922 helped lead Tulsa to the pennant. He hit 71 doubles the year after that and then 100 in 1924. The 100 doubles (over 168 games) set an organized baseball record. That season, Lamb also led the league in hits, with 261. Lamb stood at just 5 ft 7 in (1.70 m) and weighed 150 lbs.
