Jim Gentile

1963 Topps

James Edward “Jim” Gentile (June 3, 1934-) held the American League record for grand slams in a season with five, set in 1961, which stood until 1987 when Don Mattingly hit six for the New York Yankees. Gentile signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1952, but spent seven years in the minors, as the Dodgers already had All-Star Gil Hodges at first base. Jim finally got a chance to prove himself after being traded to the Baltimore Orioles in 1959 and he made the most of being an everyday player finishing second in American League Rookie of the Year voting and earning All-Star honors. In 1961, during Mantle-Maris’ run at Babe Ruth’s record of 60 home runs, Gentile put together a near MVP season as he batted .302 with 147 hits including 46 home runs, scored 96 runs and led the league with 141 RBI. Jim played nine years in the Major Leagues with the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers (1957/1958), the Baltimore Orioles (1960-1963), the Kansas City Athletics (1964-1965), the Houston Astros (1965-1966) and the Cleveland Indians, earning three consecutive All-Star Game selections (1960-1962). He was an excellent fielder posting a .990 fielding percentage. Jim Gentile finished his career with a .260 career batting average with 759 hits including 179 home runs, scored 434 runs and drove in 549 runs over 936 games.
