Arndt Jorgens - 1934 Goudey

Arndt Ludwig Jorgens (May 18, 1905 - March 1, 1980) was one of only three Norwegian-born players to play in the Major Leagues, another of which was his brother Orville who pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies. Arndt spent his entire career in New York Yankees pinstripes (1929-1939) backing up Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey. Jorgens spent five years in the minors where he batted .292 in 512 games before being called up in 1929. Arndt filled in well for Dickey throughout his career, but was especially helpful when the Hall of Famer was suspended for 30 days in 1932. In 286 career games over 11 seasons, Jorgens posted a .978 career fielding percentage while picking off 32% of would-be base stealers. Arndt was a member of five World Series winning Yankees teams (1932, 1936-1939), though he never appeared in a Fall Classic, and played alongside some of the greatest of all-time including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez and Joe DiMaggio. Arndt Jorgens retired after the 1939 championship season having collected 176 hits, 79 runs, 89 RBI while hitting .238 in 307 games.
