Roger Maxwell "Doc" Cramer (July 22, 1905 - September 9, 1990), born in Beach Haven, New Jersey, was a Major League Baseball center fielder and left-handed batter who played in the American League for the Philadelphia Athletics (1929-35), Boston Red Sox (1936-40), Washington Senators (1941) and Detroit Tigers (1942-48).
Cramer tied a major league record by going 6-for-6 in a nine-inning game, and he is the only American League player to do it twice (1932 and 1935).
Cramer was selected for the All-Star game five times (1935, 1937-40), and in 1934 he hit for the cycle.

Cramer was a better defensive player than Miller and Haas and was almost certainly better with the stick than the aging Miller in 1931-1932, but he was wasted on the bench.

Most comfortable in a solo or duo setting, Doc was nevertheless matched with a country band - in fact THE country band - when 'Good Deal!' was recorded in March 1968 with the Nashville A-team which included Grady Martin (guitar), Tommy Jackson (fiddle) and Floyd Cramer (piano).
The setting may be unfamiliar, but not Doc's repertoire, chosen from traditional old timey war-horses like the ancient 'Shady Grove', 1930s country hits from the likes of Jimmie Rodgers, Roy Acuff, Cliff Carlisle and The Carter Family, and old minstrel/vaudeville showstoppers such as 'Alabama Jubilee' and 'Bye Bye Blues'.
