Dick Groat - 1961 Topps

Richard Morrow “Dick” Groat (November 4, 1930-) was a two-time All-American in basketball from Duke University, was voted the 1951 Helms Foundation College Basketball Player of the Year and is the first person to be inducted into the college basketball and college baseball halls of fame. Dick played the 1952-53 season with the Fort Wayne Pistons, scoring 309 points on 109 free throws and 100 field goals while pulling down 86 rebounds in 26 games. Despite his success on the hardcourts, Groat joined the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1952 at shortstop next to Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski creating one of the greatest double play tandems in Major League history. Dick played shortstop for 14 years in the Majors with the Pirates (1952, 1955-1962), the St. Louis Cardinals (1963-1965), the Philadelphia Phillies (1966-1967) and the San Francisco Giants (1967). In 1960, Groat led the National League in batting average (.325), earning the NL Most Valuable Player Award while leading the Pirates to the 1960 World Series title over the heavily favored New York Yankees. Dick also won the 1964 World Series title with the Cardinals, again over the Yankees, and earned five NL All-Star Game selections. Over his 14 seasons, he posted a .961 career fielding percentage with 1,237 double plays. Dick Groat ended his career with a .286 career batting average with 2,138 hits including 352 doubles, 829 runs and 707 RBI in 1,929 games.
