William Malcolm Dickey (June 6, 1907 - November 12, 1993) is known for his strong and accurate arm as well as his masterful handling Hall of Fame caliber pitching staffs that included Hoyt, Pennock, Ruffing and Gomez. Though overshadowed offensively by his larger-than-life teammates Ruth, Gehrig and Lazzeri, Dickey had impressive numbers like a career .313 batting average, 1,969 hits, 202 home runs and 1,209 RBI over his 17 seasons with the New York Yankees. Bill Dickey was a part of nine American League championship teams in New York and won eight World Series titles. Bill Dickey was an 11-time All-Star selection, a 14-times World Series champion as a member of the Yankee organization and was a mentor of the next generation of Yankee Hall of Fame catchers in Yogi Berra who shared his #8, which the Yankees retired in both of their names in 1972. Dickey’s hard nose playing style got him a 30-day suspension when he broke Senator Carl Reynolds’ jaw with one punch after a collision at the plate. William Malcolm Dickey was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1954.
