Anthony Michael Lazzeri
Birth: Dec. 6, 1903
Death: Aug. 6, 1946

Professional Baseball Player. Hall of Fame member (Yankees). Though "Poosh 'Em Up" Tony Lazzeri, the power-hitting second sacker for the Murderers' Row Yankees, may have been overshadowed by his teammates, those in the game respected his leadership skills. A key member of six pennant-winners, he was a .300 hitter five times and drove in over 100 runs seven times. Lazzeri, who still holds the American League single-game record with 11 RBI on May 24, 1936, belted 60 home runs and drove in 222 runs in 1925 for Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League.

Tony, You were one of the deadliest clutch hitters ever! I understand you batted sixth behind Combs, Koenig, Ruth, Gehrig, and Meusel. Sixth?No wonder they called you guys Murder's Row. You were a class act from everything I've read.
