Al Zarilla - 1951 Topps Red Back

Allen Lee “Zeke” Zarilla (May 1, 1919 - August 28, 1996) spent ten seasons in the Major Leagues, dividing his time among three different teams. A strong-armed outfielder with a reputation as a line-driver hitter at the plate, Zarilla debuted with the St. Louis Browns (1943-1944, 1946-1949, 1952), and also played for the Boston Red Sox (1949-1950, 1952-1953) and Chicago White Sox (1951-1952). His best season was 1948, posting career-highs in batting average (.329), hits 174), home runs (12), doubles (39) and stolen bases (144) – good enough to earn him an appearance in the 1948 All-Star Game. Zeke ended his playing career with a .276 average, blasting 61 home runs and 456 RBI.
