#116 Eddie Yost. He didn't always hit for average, but he had a high OBP due to his ability to draw walks.

Eddie may have been able to get a lot of walks but as Juan Samuel once said "You can't walk yourself off the island"

Died in a Christmas Day car accident in 1989. Thanks to his often time nemeses, George Steinbrenner, he was buried near Babe Ruth in Gate Of Heaven Cemetery

A .312 hitter and two time AS who was the last out in Don Larsen's perfect game, on a questionable called strike 3 to a hitter who struck out only 119 times in almost 4000 ABs

#119 Dale Mitchell I purchased this during the Super Bowl of 2022 from an eBay auction for around $46.00 and change. Man, I thought that I found the greatest deal in the world as the Mitchell is mostly found off-center. It was great until I was placing the card in my binder and the light happened to show the bottom left portion. I brought the issue up with the seller, requesting that I should receive a partial refund and he agreed. As I will have to accept that other cards in my set are going to remain pretty much as they are, I've learned to live with it.

As a boy, Marlin built up his arm and honed his accuracy by tossing pecans at squirrels

I first read that as “tossing pelicans at squirrels.” That would be impressive.

Let's try this again, on the first post Berra "listed" to the left and I couldn't straighten the image. Neither of us have had any altering element that would have induced such a thing from happening.

Small guy with big ego, almost became a jockey before embarking on a 50 year MLB career. But did get fired once by Branch Rickey for betting on the horsies
