Willie Jones Black Back - 1952 Topps

Willie Edward “Puddin’ Head” Jones (August 16, 1925 - October 18, 1983) played 13 years for the Philadelphia Phillies (1947-1959) and was a key member of the 1950 Whiz Kids as he hit 25 home runs during the regular season and helped the Phillies reach their first World Series since 1915. (Philadelphia lost in s four-game sweep to the New York Yankees.) Willie joined the Phillies organization in 1947 and was their everyday third baseman by his third year. Jones was an exceptional fielder who led the all National League third basemen in putouts seven times, fielding percentage five times, and assists and double plays on two separate occasions. In 1949, he also began to show his power at the plate as he hit 19 home runs, beginning a string of eight years with 12 or more dingers, 10 overall. In 1950, as he led the Phils to the National League pennant, Willie Jones had career highs in runs (100), hits (163), triples (6), home runs (25) and RBI (88). He was also named the NL All-Star team for the first of two consecutive seasons. During his 13 seasons in the City of Brotherly Love, he establish the franchise record for career grand slams with 6, which was later matched by Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt and All-Star Ryan Howard. Jones briefly played for the Cleveland Indians in 1959 (11 games), but finished his career with the Cincinnati Reds (1959-1961). Willie Jones retired with 1,502 hits including 252 doubles and 190 home runs, 786 runs scored, 812 RBI and a .258 batting average. In the field, he posted a .963 fielding percentage with 2,045 putouts, 2,934 assists, 273 double plays, and 192 errors in 5,176 chances.
