Dick Sisler - 1951 Bowman

Richard Allan “Dick” Sisler (1920-1998) hit one of the most famous home runs in Philadelphia Phillies history when he blasted a tenth-inning, game-winning dinger over the wall at Ebbets Field on the final day of the 1950 season to snatch the National League pennant away from the Brooklyn Dodgers. The son of Hall of Fame St. Louis Browns first baseman George Sisler came up playing first and left for the cross-town St. Louis Cardinals in 1946. He began playing professionally in the Cardinals minor league system in 1939 before serving in World War II. In 1946, Sisler joined a cast of Hall of Famers like Stan Musial, Red Schoendienst and Enos Slaughter to capture the National League pennant and World Series over the Boston Red Sox. Dick began and ended his career in a Redbirds uniform (1946-1947, 1952-1953) and played for the Phillies (1948-1951) and the Cincinnati Reds (1952) during his eight-year career. In Philadelphia he helped the “Whiz Kids” which included Hall of Famers Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts win their first pennant in 35 years, before falling to the New York Yankees in a four-game sweep. Sisler also earned his one and only All-Star game selection that year. Dick Sisler finished his career with a .276 batting average and amassed 720 hits, 302 runs scored and 360 RBI in 799 games. When his playing days ended, Dick managed the Cincinnati Reds from 1964 to 1965, compiling a 121-94 record in 215 games at the helm.
