Al Lopez, the answer to a great baseball question


Image result for Al Lopez images

Al Lopez is the answer to a great trivia question.

Between 1949 and 1964, the Yankees were in the Series every year but two: the Chisox won in '59 and the Indians in '54.

Who was the manager both times? Al Lopez.

As a player, Lopez was a pretty good catcher over 19 years and a Hall of Fame member.

Lopez hit .261 with 51 homers and 652 RBIs. He set the record for most games caught (1,918). It was broken by Bob Boone and Carlton Fisk.


Lopez died in 2005.  He was 97.   

Lopez lived long enough to see the White Sox win the 2005 Series.   It must have been a real treat for him.
