Frank Peter Joseph Crosetti (October 4, 1910 - February 11, 2002) was a part of 17 World Series championships with the New York Yankees, eight as a player (1932, 1936-1939, 1941, 1943, 1947) and nine as a member of the coaching staff (1949-1953, 1956, 1958, 1960-1961). Crosetti played shortstop and third base for the Bronx Bombers for 17 seasons. In 1938, Crosetti led the American League in stolen bases (27) and plate appearances (757) – a Major League record for most during a 154-game season. An excellent defensive player, Frank led the AL in putouts and double plays in 1938 and 1939. He was a master at the hidden ball trick. During his 17 seasons, he also led the American League in HBPs, finishing his career with 114 total HBPs. Frank Crosetti retired with a .245 career batting average adding 1,541 hits, 1,006 runs, 260 doubles and 649 RBI. Despite his solid hitting, Crosetti was considered the weakest hitter in the Yankees ultra-powerful line-up. After retiring as a player, Crosetti coached with the Yankees for twenty years (1948-1968) before moving on to the Seattle Pilots (1969) and eventually the Minnesota Twins (1970-1971). Frank’s 36 seasons with the New York Yankees is the longest continuous tenure in franchise history.
