Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Johnny Mize


Acquired: August 22, 1949: Johnny was purchased by the Yankees from the New York Giants for $40,000.


Don S. from Bastrop, TX wrote to say, "Big John was my childhood hero. I was a 12-13 year old kid during the 52-53 World Series and I remember him coming off the bench as a pinch hitter and hitting the ball over the fence."  Editor's Note: Johnny appeared in all five World Series with the Yankees from 1949-53.  His impact was greatest in the 1952 Series when he belted three home runs, a double and six RBI in fifteen at-bats with a .400 AVG and 1.567 OPS as the Yankees beat the Dodgers four games to three.
