Joe Adcock - 1951 Bowman

Joseph Wilbur “Billy Joe” Adcock (1927-1999) set a record for most total bases in a single game in 1954 when he blasted four home runs against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Adcock began his career playing left field in Cincinnati and the Reds already had Ted Kluszewski entrenched at first base. Joe showed his incredible power as soon as he arrived in Milwaukee. He joined a Braves team that included Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews. In 1957, Adcock helped the Braves win the World Series and led them back the Fall Classic in 1958. He hit .250 with 28 hits and seven runs during nine World Series games in 1957 and 1958. Joe Adcock played 17 years with the Cincinnati Reds (1950-1952), Milwaukee Braves (1953-1962), Cleveland Indians (1963) and Los Angeles/California Angels (1964-1966). Adcock was a huge man with tremendous power, but also possessed one of the best gloves in the league. When he retired, he had the third highest fielding percentage (.994) in MLB history. Joe Adcock retired after the 1966 season batting a career .277 with 1,832 hits including 336 home runs and 295 doubles, adding 823 runs and 1,122 RBI. He played in both of the 1960 MLB All-Star Games.
