Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Tom Tresh


Traded: June 14, 1969: Tom was traded to the Detroit Tigers in return for Ron Woods.


1962 Rookie of the Year:  Tom easily won the Rookie of the Year award in the American League, garnering 13 of 20 votes (only one name was cast per ballot at the time.)  Future manager Buck Rodgers, of the L.A. Angels, finished a distant second with four votes.  Future Yankee Bernie Allen, 1964 Cy Young Award winner Dean Chance and Boston reliever Dick Radatz each collected one vote.


October 10, 1962: With the World Series tied at two games and Game Five tied at 2-2, Tom Tresh followed singles by Tony Kubek and Bobby Richardson with a three-run home run off the Giants' Jack Sanford.  The Yankees would go on to win the game and two games later, also won the World Series.  While the Yankees struggled offensively in the 1962 World Series, Tresh was one of the few standouts, collecting 9 hits in 28 at bats (.321 which led the team) with a double, the aforementioned home run, four RBI and five runs scored.

October 12, 1964: In the critical fifth game of the 1964 World Series with the series tied, the Yankees were shutout by Bob Gibson heading into the ninth inning at Yankee Stadium.  Mickey Mantle started the inning by reaching on an error.  After Elston Howard struck out and Joe Pepitone grounded out, Tom Tresh connected on a two-run home run to tie the game.  Unfortunately, a three-run home run by Tim McCarver quickly followed in the top of the 10th and the Yankees went on to lose the game and eventually, the Series.
