Luke Easter - 1952 Topps

Luscious Luke Easter (August 4, 1915 - March 29, 1979) hit the longest home run at Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1949, a shot that reportedly travelled 477 feet. Easter was a giant first baseman that, after just winning the 1948 Negro League World Series with the Homestead Grays, signed with the Cleveland Indians in 1949. Luke was 34-years-old when he joined the Tribe full-time, hitting .280 with 28 home runs, 151 hits and driving in 107 RBI in his rookie campaign. Easter’s time in the big leagues was short-lived as he only played six seasons, all with the Indians, before returning to the minors. Luke Easter posted a .274 Major League career batting average with 472 hits, 93 home runs and 340 RBI. After retiring from the bigs, he played Triple-A ball well into his forties. A holdup man tragically shot Luke to death in 1979 as he was working as a bank messenger.
