Cletis Leroy “Clete” Boyer (February 9, 1937 - June 4, 2007) is the youngest of three brothers to play Major League Baseball and one of four brothers to play professional baseball. Originally scouted and passed over by the New York Yankees, the Kansas City Athletics signed Clete as a “bonus baby” (the A’s were required to keep Boyer on their Major League roster for two full seasons) in 1955. Boyer played second and third base and shortstop for 16 seasons in the Majors with the Athletics (1955-1957), the New York Yankees (1959-1966) and the Atlanta Braves (1967-1971). In 1964, as the Yankees faced the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series, Clete and Kan Boyer, third baseman for the Redbirds, became the first brother combination to each hit a home run when they did so in Game 7. Clete holds the World Series record for most career assists by a third baseman (66) as he appeared in five Fall Classics, winning two (1961-1962). Boyer was the 1969 National League Gold Glove winner and was considered for the MVP trophy in 1967. Clete finished his career with a .966 fielding percentage. At the plate, Clete Boyer posted a .242 career batting average with 1,396 hits including 200 doubles and 162 home runs, scored 645 runs and drove in 654 runs over his 16-year career. Following his playing days, Boyer served as a coach under former teammate Billy Martin with the Oakland A’s and Yankees.
