Facts, Trivia, Memories and More about Tommy Byrne


Trade: June 15th, 1951: Tommy was traded to the St. Louis Browns with $25,000 for LHP Stubby Overmire.


June 23, 1949: Tommy tossed a complete came one-hit shutout against the Detroit Tigers as the Yankees pounded the Tigers 12-0.  Tommy carried a no-hit bid into the 8th inning, but it was broken up by Tigers second baseman Johnny Lipon, who led off the inning.  Conversely, the Yankees pounded out 17 hits against four Detroit pitchers with Tommy Henrich leading the attack, going 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI.  Jerry Coleman also nabbed three hits and scored three runs and Byrne, helping his own cause, went 2-for-4 on the day with a run, two RBI and a triple.


Zita C. from Tampa, FL (Originally NY) wrote: "Eddie Lopat, besides being a consistent and reliable winning pitcher, was one of the finest pitching coaches anyone would give his or her eye teeth to work with. I met him after a game in which he had beaten the Cleveland Indians to a pulp for the umpteenth time, just wanting to ask him something about the slider, and his response was to take me aside and show me how to throw a good one. I ended up working with him for almost four years and what I learned from him was nothing short of priceless. He helped me become a more effective pitcher and for that I will always remember him."
