Jackie Jensen - 1951 Bowman

Jack Eugene Jensen (1927-1982) was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1984 as the ‘Golden Boy” from the University of California at Berkeley. In 1947, Jensen out-pitched NFL Hall of Famer Bobby Layne to win Cal’s first ever NCAA baseball tournament championship. Jensen, a product of the New York Yankee farm system, seemed destined to be the heir apparent to soon-to-retire Joe DiMaggio in centerfield. His week showing in his first year at the plate opened the door for the young country boy from Oklahoma, Mickey Mantle, to succeed the Yankee Clipper. Jackie played right field for 11 seasons in Major League Baseball with the Yankees (1950-1952), the Washington Senators (1952-1953) and the Boston Red Sox (1954-1959, 1961). In Boston, Jensen achieved his greatest success as he led the AL in triple and stolen bases once each and three times led the league in RBI. After batting .286 with 157 hits, 31 doubles, 35 home runs and 122 RBI, Jackie was named the 1958 American league Most Valuable Player. He was a decent fielder posting a .977 fielding percentage and he earned three trips to the MLB All-Star Game. Jackie Jensen retired after the 1961 season with 1,463 hits including 259 doubles and 199 home runs, scored 810 runs, collected 929 RBI and batted .279 for his 11-year career.
