Major League Baseball Player. For seven seasons (1966 to 1971), he played at the third-base position with the Boston Red Sox, Kansas City Royals, New York Mets and Washington Senators. Born Joseph Anthony Foy, he attended Evander Childs High School in the Bronx and was signed by the Minnesota Twins as an amateur free agent in 1962. He was acquired by the Red Sox and marked his Major League debut with them on April 13th, 1966. From the time he was called up, Foy had the starting third-base position secured and during his rookie year (1966), he yielded what would be his career-high in hits with 145. Foy was a contributor to Boston's squad whom captured the American League Pennant in 1967 and referred to their season as "The Impossible Dream". During the 1967 World Series, he recorded 2 hits in 6 games played. In 716 regular season games, he compiled 615 hits with a .248 lifetime batting average. Towards the end of his career, he battled substance abuse that hindered his performance as a player and unfortunately carried over to his post-baseball years. Foy would later serve as a counselor for troubled youths in his native New York-area. He died from a heart attack at the early age of 46. (bio by: C.S.)
