Johnny Wyrostek - 1951 Bowman

John Barney “Johnny” Wyrostek (1919-1986) was an accomplished center fielder and right fielder in the game during and in the years following World War II. The St. Louis Cardinals initially signed Wyrostek straight out of high school as an amateur free agent in 1937, but his Major League debut wouldn’t come until September 1942 with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He saw his most powerful seasons in 1950 and 1951 – the same two years he was selected as a National League All-Star. Wyrostek played 11 seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1942-1943), Philadelphia Phillies (1946-1947 and 1952-1954) and Cincinnati Reds (1948-1952). He batted .271 with 58 home runs and 481 RBI in 1221 games. He had 525 runs scored, 1,149 hits (including 209 doubles and 45 triples) and 33 stolen bases.
