Walter Pipp

1915/16 M101-5 Sporting News

Walter Clement “Wally” Pipp (February 17, 1893 - January 11, 1965) was a Major League Baseball first baseman who gained sports immortality as the man who lost his starting role to Lou Gehrig -- paving the way for Gehrig’s historic streak of 2,130 consecutive games. Pipp played a dozen games for the Detroit Tigers (1913) before returning to college. He later joined the New York Yankees (1915-1925) and leading the American League in home runs twice: 1916 (12) and 1917 (9). Although he was a member of the Bronx Bombers’ 1923 World Series championship team, set the Yankees franchise record for sacrifice bunts (226), and had two seasons with more than 100 RBIs and three with a batting average of more than .300, Pipp will forever be remembered as the man who lost his spot in starting lineup June 2, 1925, to a young Gehrig. Pipp was traded to the Cincinnati Reds (1926-1928), playing 372 games before retiring with 1,941 hits.
