Enos Bradsher Slaughter (April 27, 1916 - August 12, 2002), known for his hustle, is famously remembered for his “Mad Dash Home” from first on a double hit by Cardinals teammate Harry Walker to win Game 5 of the 1946 World Series. The Cardinals beat the Red Sox in seven games to clinch the title. Minor league manager Eddie Dyer chastised Enos, or “Country” to teammates, for loafing onto the field at which time he vowed never to let it happen again. After spending three years serving in World War II, Slaughter returned in the 1946 season to help guide the Redbirds to the title. Slaughter was known for his contact hitting, surpassing the .300-mark ten times in his career. Spending the majority of his career with the Cardinals (1938-1942, 1946-1953), then bouncing around over the next six seasons between the New York Yankees, Kansas City Athletics and Milwaukee Braves, Slaughter earned 10 All-Star game selections and was a member of four World Series champions (1942, 1946, 1956, 1958). Enos Slaughter retired with a career .300 batting average with 2,383 hits, 1,247 runs, 169 home runs and 1,304 RBI. The Veterans Committee elected Enos Bradsher Slaughter to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.
