Sammy Byrd

1934-36 Batter-Up (R318)

Samuel Dewey Byrd (October 5, 1906 - May 11, 1981) retired from baseball to pursue a career in professional golf, winning eleven tournaments on the PGA Tour. Sam, or Sammy, began his career with the New York Yankees (1929-1933) before being purchased by the Cincinnati Reds where he played his final two seasons (1935-1936). Byrd was often referred to as ‘Babe Ruth’s legs” because he frequently replaced the aging slugger as a pinch runner toward the end of Ruth’s career. He was a member of the 1932 New York Yankees World Series Champions, appearing in one game of the Fall Classic. Sam finished his baseball career after the 1936 season with 465 hits, 304 runs, 220 RBI and a.274 career batting average. Sam Byrd is the only player in history to appear in a World Series and compete in a The Master’s Tournament. He finished in the top 10 at the Masters twice in his professional golf career.
