Hank Bauer - 1959 Topps

Henry Albert "Hank" Bauer (July 31, 1922 – February 9, 2007) enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps one month after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  He contracted malaria on Guadalcanal and was injured twice in 32 months of combat, also earning 11 campaign ribbons.

He returned to the States after the war, and signed a minor league contract with the Yankees.  He worked his way through the system, and made his major league debut in September, 1948.  Hank Bauer played 14 major league seasons, 1948-1959 with the Yankees and 1960-1961 with the Kansas City Athletics.  Bauer was a hard-nosed right fielder who won seven World Series championships in New York, and retired from the game as a three-time All-Star with a .277 career batting average, 164 home runs and 7003 RBI.

Hank Bauer had three managerial stints in the major leagues, with the Kansas City Athletics (1960–1961), Baltimore Orioles (1964–1968) and Oakland Athletics (1969).  He led the Orioles to a world championship in 1966, the eighth in Bauer’s career as a player and manager.
