Thomas David Henrich (February 20, 1913 - December 1, 2009) signed with the New York Yankees in 1937, after Commissioner Judges Kennesaw Mountain Landis made him a free agent due to the Cleveland Indians virtually “hiding” him in the minor leagues for nearly four seasons. In New York, he joined one of the best hitting outfields in baseball history alongside Joe DiMaggio and Charlie Keller. He played his entire career with the New York Yankees “Bronx Bombers” (1937-1942, 1946-1950). From 1937-1950, Tommy Henrich helped New York win eight American League pennants and seven World Series titles, though he only appeared in four postseasons. Henrich enjoyed three seasons hitting over the .300-mark, had seven seasons with 115 hits or more and four seasons with 100 or more runs. The five-time All Star selection had a breakout year in 1941 when he clouted 31 home runs, hit for a .277 average adding 149 hits with 85 RBI. Yankees broadcaster nicknamed Henrich “Old Reliable” for his uncanny knack for clutch hitting. Tommy Henrich ended his career with 1,297 hits, 901 runs, 183 home runs and 795 RBI. Henrich retired and coached the Yankees, Giants and Tigers before becoming a color commentator for ABC in 1965.
