George Kell - 1951 Bowman

George Clyde Kell (1922-2009) holds the Major League record for least number of strikeouts in a season from the league’s batting champion when he only struck out 13 times but posting a league best .343 average. The well-traveled George Kell was a corner infielder for the Philadelphia A’s (1943-1946), Detroit Tigers (1946-1952), Boston Red Sox (1952-1954), the Chicago White Sox (1954-1956) and the Baltimore Orioles (1956-1957) for 15 seasons. In 1950, Kell led the American League in hits (218) and doubles (56) while boasting .340 average. Practice was the key to Kell’s success as he worked hard on every aspect of the game to become a solid defensive player and consistent hitter. At the plate, George topped the .300-mark nine times and was the AL leader in fielding percentage seven times. George Kell retired with 2,054 hits, 881 runs scored, 870 RBI and a .306 career batting average. Kell went on to enjoy a 40-year career broadcasting Major League Baseball games. The Veterans Committee elected George Clyde Kell to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983.
