Irving Arnold Noren (November 29, 1924 – November 15, 2019) A good utility player and coach, Irv Noren played on two World Series championship teams and coached two more. As a rookie with the 1950 Senators, Noren batted .295 with 14 home runs and 160 hits. After leaving Washington, Noren had some pretty good years with Casey Stengel’s Yankees. He participated in the World Series in 1952, 1953, and 1955 and was an All-Star in 1954. Noren played all three outfield positions and was a valuable asset as a utility player who produced for the Yankees. After his days in pinstripes, he was a journeyman for the Kansas City A’s, St. Louis Cards, Chicago Cubs, and Dodgers. Noren was third-base coach for the Oakland A’s under Dick Williams when they won the 1972 and 1973 World Series. After baseball, he owned racehorses and was a successful businessman. Noren died in 2019, just two weeks before his 95th birthday.
