Lindstrom dropped out of high after his sophomore year to play for the Toledo Mudhens. He was there for a season when he was called up in 1924 for the New York Giant. That was the year that the Giants went to the World Series. Lindstrom, having played in this series is the youngest player ever to play in a World Series (18 years old). That series was notable for the game seven ball that bounced over Lindstrom's head (identical to a ball that bouced over his head earlier in the game), causing the last out with the Giants losing.


Lindstrom broke into the major leagues in 1924 with the New York Giants, a team he would play for until 1932. During this time he established himself as a consistent, disciplined hitter. Arguably his best seasons were 1928, when he batted .358 with 14 home runs and 107 RBI, and 1930, when he batted .379 with 22 home runs and 106 RBI. He scored 99 runs both years and finished second in MVP voting to Jim Bottomley in 1928.

On December 12, 1932, Lindstrom was the centerpiece of a three-team trade between the Giants, Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies. As a member of the Pirates, he hit .300 for the seventh and final time in his career in 1933 but otherwise had two unproductive seasons. On November 22, 1934, he was traded again, this time to the Chicago Cubs. After an ineffective season there and the next year with the Brooklyn Dodgers, Lindstrom retired.
