Walter Alston

1956 Topps

Walter Emmons Alston (December 1, 1911 - October 1, 1984) managed the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers for 23 seasons (1954-1976) and led them to seven National League pennants and four World Championships (1955, 1959, 1963 and 1965). Alston played only one game for the 1936 St. Louis Cardinals when he replaced Johnny Mize, who had been ejected. In his only at-bat, Alton struck out on three straight pitches. Fortunately, for Dodger fans, the “soft-spoken, low-profile organization man” would take over as manager of a franchise that had made seven unsuccessful World Series appearances. Walter “Smokey” Alston managed the Dodgers for 3,658 games, winning 2,040 games. Walter Emmons Alston was elected to National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983.
