Al Lopez - 1951 Bowman

Alfonso Ramon Lopez (1908-2005) held the record for most games behind the plate with 1,918 for more than 40 years before is was broken by Bob Boone in 1987 and again by fellow Hall of Famer Gary Carter. Lopez was a solid, defensive catcher primarily with the Dodgers, Bees and Pirates from 1928-1947, but was more comfortable and successful in the dugout guiding Cleveland to the 1954 American League pennant and the White Sox to the 1959 AL pennant (their first since 1919). Lopez was the only manager to interrupt the New York Yankees incredible run of AL pennant from 1949-1964. Lopez’ Indians team finished second behind the Yankees in every other season and during his tenure with the White Sox, they never had a losing season. Al Lopez retired after 17 seasons with a record of 1,422-1,026. The Veterans Committee elected Alfonso Ramon Lopez to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977.
