Roy Sievers - 1951 Bowman

Roy Edward Sievers (November 18, 1926- ) spent 17 years as a Major League Baseball first baseman and left fielder for five different teams, earning himself a number of honors and accolades – including the American League Rookie of the Year honors. The St. Louis Browns signed Sievers as a free agent in 1947, and he debuted in the majors two years later, batting .306 with 16 home runs and 91 RBIs his rookie season … good enough for Rookie of the Year (1949). Hampered by injuries for the remainder of his years with the Browns (1949-1953), Roy was traded to the Washington Senators (1954-1959, 1964-1965). In his first season in DC, Sievers led the league in sacrifice flies (11) – the first year the statistic was recorded. He enjoyed a banner year in 1957 as he led the AL in home runs (42), RBIs (114), extra base hits (70), and total bases (331), while batting .301. That same year he finished third in the MVP balloting – behind Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams. He continued to provide relatively productive seasons for the Chicago White Sox (1960-1961) and Philadelphia Phillies (1962-1964) before retiring. A five-time All-Star (1956, 1957, 1959 [2], 1961), Sievers blasted 318 home runs in 6,387 at bats, along with 945 runs, 1,703 hits, 1,147 RBIs, and a .267 career batting average. He served as a Cincinnati Reds coach for one year (1966) after leaving the game.
