Eddie Yost - 1951 Bowman

Edward Frederick Joseph “Walking Man” Yost (October 13, 1926) was considered one of the best third basemen and leadoff men of his era, earning his Walking Man nickname for his uncanny ability to draw a base on balls. The Washington Senators signed Yost as an amateur free agent in 1944, and he made his Major League debut at the age of 17 on August 16, 1944, having never played in the minors. He played in only seven games and batted .143, drawing one walk, the first of his 1,614 bases on balls. After the season, Yost turned 18 and joined the US Navy in the waning days of World War II. Yost played for the Senators (1944, 1946-1958), Detroit Tigers (1959-1960) and the Los Angeles Angels (1961-1962). He earned a place as a reserve player for the American League team during the 1952 All-Star Game. In his 18-year career, Yost played in 2,109 games (becoming the first third baseman to appear in more than 2,000 games), collected 1,863 hits in 7,346 at-bats for a .254 batting average. He also managed 139 home runs, 683 RBI, and led the American League in bases on balls six times.
