John Berardino - 1951 Bowman

John Beradino (born Giovanni Berardino 1917-1996) had the luxury of enjoying two complete careers in both Hollywood and baseball where he was known as the “one-man infield” for his ability to play every position. The St. Louis Browns signed John in 1937 and he debuted in 1939 after batting .334 and .309 in the minor leagues in 1937 and 1938, respectively. Beradino was originally called up as a regular in the Browns lineup, but eventually faded to more of a utility role after three seasons. His best year came in 1940 as he batted .258 with 135 hits including 16 home runs, 71 runs and 85 RBI in 142 games. Beradino enlisted in the United States Naval Reserves, serving from 1942 to 1945, during World War II, but returned to starting second base slot in St. Louis. Johnny played every infield position during his career with the Browns (1939-1942, 1946-1947,1951), the Cleveland Indians (1948-1950, 1952) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (1950, 1952). While at war, he missed out on the Browns American League pennant run and eventual loss to the cross-town rival Cardinals in the 1944 World Series. He was, however, a member of the 1948 Indians team that beat the Boston Braves to win the franchise’s second title. John Beradino finished his with a .249 batting average, 755 hits, 334 runs and 387 RBI in 912 games. In the field, he posted a .960 fielding percentage in 837 fielding games. After Beradino retired from baseball, he spent 25 years playing Dr. Steve Hardy on ABC’s General Hospital.
