Jerry Coleman - 1951 Bowman

Gerald Francis “Jerry” Coleman (1924-2014) was considered by his Hall of Fame manager Frankie Frisch as a potential inductee himself until injuries cut his career on the field short. Jerry Coleman did earn Hall of Fame induction as the 2005 Ford C. Frick Award winner, honoring broadcasters with “major contributions to baseball.” Jerry served in World War II prior to the start of his Major League career and left baseball to serve in the Korean War. He was nicknamed “Colonel” due to his impressive United States Marine Corps rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Coleman played his entire career with the New York Yankees (1949-1957), finished third in American League Rookie of the Year voting and earned a 1950 AL All-Star selection. Jerry played second base for the Bronx Bombers for nine years and helped the Yankees reach six World Series, winning four (1949-1951, 1956). He was named the 1950 World Series MMVP (Babe Ruth Award winner) after hitting .286 with four hits and three RBI during the 1950 Fall Classic. Jerry was an above average fielder posting a .976 fielding percentage at second base. Jerry Coleman finished his career with a .263 batting average with 558 hits, 267 runs and 235 RBI. Following his playing days, Jerry managed the San Diego Padres for one season compiling a 73-89 record over 163 games. He then moved into the broadcast booth for the CBS, the Yankees, the California Angels and the San Diego Padres. Coleman called Mickey Mantle’s 500th home run.
