Tito Francona

1960 Topps

John Patsy “Tito” Francona (November 4, 1933 - February 13, 2018) is a retired Major League Baseball star who spent 15 seasons playing for nine different teams as a first baseman, outfielder, and pinch hitter. The St. Louis Browns signed Tito as an amateur free agent in 1952, and after spending time in the minor leagues and the armed forces, was rostered for two seasons with the O’s (1956-1957), where he batted .249 before being sent to the Chicago White Sox (1958) as part of a deal that included future Hall of Famer Larry Doby. After 41 games as their starting right fielder, Francona was traded to the Detroit Tigers (1958) before sent to the Cleveland Indians (1959-1964). In his first season there, Tito batted .363 with 79 RBI and a career high 20 homers. (His .363 batting average would have led the American League, but he was 34 at-bats short of the 3.1 per game necessary to qualify for the honor.) In 1960, he led the AL in doubles (36) with a .292 batting average. In 1961, Francona was batting .293 with 11 home runs and 53 RBI at the second All-Star break of the season when he was named to his only AL All-Star squad. Francona began to wind down his career playing for the St. Louis Cardinals (1965-1966), Philadelphia Phillies (1967), Atlanta Braves (1967-1969), Oakland Athletics (1969-1970), and Milwaukee Brewers (1970). He retired after compiling 1,395 hits, 656 RBI, 224 doubles, and a .272 batting average. His son, Terry Francona, was also an MLB player and manager who led the Boston Red Sox to their first World Series championship in 86 years.
