Hank Bauer - 1951 Bowman

Henry Albert “Hank” Bauer (1922-2007) holds the record for the longest World Series hitting streak at 17 games and is most notably remembered for his trade from the New York Yankees to the Kansas City Athletics for Roger Maris. Hank grew up the son of a poor immigrant from Austria and was hardened by the poverty his family endured at a young age. He earned a reputation early on as a hard-nosed and determined competitor and was once referred to as a man whose face likened a “clenched fist”. Bauer played right field for 14 seasons with the New York Yankees (1948-1959) and the Kansas City Athletics (1960-1961). He had nine consecutive seasons (1950-1958) with 100 or more hits and ten consecutive (1949-1958) with 10 or more home runs, topping the 20-HR mark twice. He was named to three consecutive MLB All-Star Games (1952-1954). Bauer was a key member of nine American League championship teams and seven Yankees World Series champions (1949-1953, 1956, 1958). From 1956-1958, Hank set a World Series record hitting safely in 17 straight WS games. In World Series play, Bauer posted a .245 batting average with 46 hits and 24 RBI in 53 games. Hank Bauer finished his career with Kansas City in 1961 after batting .277 over his career with 1,424 hits, 229 doubles, 164 home runs and 703 RBI. Following his playing days, he managed for eight seasons with the Kansas City/Oakland Athletics (1961-1962/1969) and the Baltimore Orioles (1964-1968). He led the Orioles to the 1966 American League pennant and World Series championship. Hank Bauer compiled a 594-544 record in 1,139 games as manager.
