2nd Baseman

NYY: 1926-1937

 

Though Poosh 'Em Up Tony Lazzeri, the power-hitting second sacker for the Murderers' Row Yankees, may have been overshadowed by his teammates, those in the game respected his leadership skills. A key member of six pennant winners, he was a .300 hitter five times and drove in over 100 runs seven times. Lazzeri, who established an American League single-game record with 11 RBIs on May 24, 1936, belted 60 home runs and drove in 222 runs in 1925 for Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League.
