Maurice McDermott

1951 Topps Red Back

Maurice Joseph "Mickey" McDermott, Jr. (April 29, 1929 – August 7, 2003) As a rookie in 1948, Mickey McDermott was touted as the next great lefty. A free spirit, McDermott was more interested in partying than pitching, and he never fulfilled those lofty expectations. Supposedly the subject of Norman Rockwell’s painting The Rookie, McDermott’s best years were with the Red Sox, where in 1953 he was 18–10 with a very nice 3.01 ERA. The next year McDermott went 7–15 for the sixth-place Senators. He played for the 1956 Yankees World Series champs and pitched three innings in relief in Game Two of that fall classic. A career .252 batter, he was often used as a pinch-hitter. A nightclub singer in the offseason, McDermott’s late-night antics caused his downfall. After baseball, his drinking hampered his business career. Luckily, he won the lottery for $7 million dollars. He passed away at the age of 74 in 2003.
