Mickey Owen - 1951 Bowman

Arnold Malcolm “Mickey” Owen (1916-2005), in 1941, set a National League record for a catcher with 476 consecutive errorless chances, a Dodgers season record of a .995 fielding percentage and committed one of the most legendary gaffes in World Series history when he let Yankees Tommy Henrich’s third strike get past him allowing Henrich to reach first safely. Owen was a catcher for 13 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals (1937-1940), Brooklyn Dodgers (1941-1945), Chicago Cubs (1949-1951) and Boston Red Sox (1954). After returning from World War II military service, Owen signed to be player/manager in the Mexican league, causing Commissioner A.B. Chandler to ban players who played south of the border. Despite Chandler’s wish for lifetime suspensions, punishment lasted only three years and Owen became a Chicago Cub in 1949. Mickey was a four-time All-Star selection. Mickey Owen retired with a .255 career batting average adding 929 hits including 162 doubles, 338 runs and 378 RBI. Owen retired to his native Missouri to open the Mickey Owen Baseball School.
