We remember Sabath Anthony Mele who was born in Queens on this day in 1922.   We remember him as Sam Mele.     

As a player, he hit .267 over 1,046 games.   He led the AL with 36 doubles in 1951.    He drove 331 runs over a 4-year period.

In 1965, Mele led the Minnesota Twins to the World Series

The Twins lost a tough 7-game series to the LA Dodgers.    Mele had some good seasons with the Twins, coming in second a couple of times before winning the AL pennant.
