Barney McCosky

1951 Bowman

William Barney McCosky (April 11, 1917 – September 6, 1996) Barney McCosky broke into the majors with style, batting .311 as a Tigers rookie in 1939. He followed that up with a .340 average and a league-leading 200 hits and 19 triples in 1940. Detroit won the AL Championship that season, and McCosky batted .304 in the World Series loss to the Reds. In 1941, McCosky batted .324, but his road to stardom was halted by a three-year stint in the US Navy. Upon his return in 1946, McCosky batted .318 and followed that with averages of .328 and .326 with the Athletics in 1947 and 1948 respectively. Back injuries derailed the speedy outfielder, and, after stops in Cincinnati and Cleveland, his career ended in 1953. The affable McCosky was popular with fans and teammates. He was inducted into the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame in 1995 and passed away a year later at age 79.
