1956 Offseason News

R.W. Jones stepped down as GM of the Athletics citing an inability to agree with other senior members of the team over what direction to take the roster. They promoted assistant GM Eric Andrews into the role, and Jones was quickly snatched up by the Braves. Jones is widely considered one of the premier GM's in the league after building the 1951 WS champions and maintaining a fine farm system. The A's futher cleaned house by firing Adam Phelphs and bringing home A's HOF'er Jerry "Slap" Hertzog, a year removed from managing the Pirates.

The Red Sox also made a managerial change, bringing in Arden Killbreath who was key in developing most of the current Tigers players into the 4-time champions they would become. After 7 seasons in Detroit, Killbreath left with the 3rd best winning percentage of all time (602-476, .558, 1 pennant). That percentage will certainly plummet in Boston.

In The News

December 5th: HOF'er David Wickersham was found dead at his home outside of Milwaukee. The 48-year-old former pitcher died from carbon monoxide poisoning after falling asleep inside a running car inside his garage. Wickersham finished his career with 376 wins and 3098 K's which today rank 4th and 3rd all-time.

Is carbon monoxide correct?

January 11: HOF pitcher Bowie Castellon died shortly after midnight in a Chicago hospital after suffering kidney failure. According to doctors, his kidneys had given him trouble for years and the problem had worsened over the past month. Castellon's 2.52 career ERA ranks 7th all-time. He was 77.

March 19: Continuing a sad offseason for baseball, yet another HOF pitcher passed away. Mark Krosser, the first great Phillies pitcher who played in the early 1900s with Dark Horse Allen, passed away in his sleep at his home outside of Washington DC. The cause of death was ruled to be heart failure. His career 2.50 ERA ranked just ahead of Castellon's at 6th all-time, and he too was 77.


Hall of Fame

Three players were elected to the HOF in 1956:


Frank Smith
, SP
Cap: Dodgers
Inducted: BBWAA 100.0%
Teams: Brooklyn N.L. 1928-1944, 1946-1950
Plaque: Smith had a long and successful career, playing 23 years and collecting a major league record 446 wins and 3407 K's. He went to 5 WS with Brooklyn, winning two of them. He also won an astounding 9 POY Awards, as well as the 1928 NL ROY Award. He led the NL in ERA 8 times and finished 2nd or 3rd an additional 8 times. Along with retiring at #1 all-time in wins and K's, he also finished with a 2.74 ERA (14th All-Time), 415 CG (17th All-Time) and 71 shutouts (4th All-Time).



David "Pops" McAuliffe
, 3B
Cap: Cubs
Inducted: BBWAA 85.0%
Teams: Chicago N.L. 1923-1945
Plaque: David was the 1923 NL ROY, and he went on to become one of the steadiest players in Cubs history. He won 3 GG's and helped bring the Cubs a WS title in 1938. He had one of the most quietly successful careers in memory, collecting 3525 hits (3rd Most All-Time), a .300 average, 596 doubles (7th All-Time), 177 homeruns, 1570 RBI (15th All-Time), 1522 runs (24th All-Time), 846 walks, 155 steals and a .769 OPS.



Jason Tedford
, 2B
Cap: Cubs
Inducted: VC
Teams: Chicago N.L. 1901-1910
Plaque: Tedford played just 10 seasons since he was 30 when the league started in 1901. He still made enough of an impression that the veteran's committee saw fit to enshrine him in Cooperstown. In those 10 seasons, Tedford won 2 BOY Awards and one batting title.He also retired with 1432 career hits (24th All-Time) and a .322 average (5th All-Time). He also won the 1905 World Series with the Cubs.

1956 Season Preview

American League

The top four teams in the AL are harder to distinguish than ever before. The Tigers are a year older and their chief rivals continue to mature and improve. Could Detroit win a record 5th straight pennant? Or is this the year they are finally knocked off? If so, by who? Meanwhile, the bottom of the division is slowly closing the gap as their young players get better with each passing season.


1. Tigers (102-52, 1st) - They are still kings of this hill. Any team that wins 4 consecutive WS and 100+ games in 3 straight seasons deserves the benefit of the doubt. Age is slowly taking its toll but no other team better combines pitching and hitting. This is still the premier offense in the game.

2. Yankees (94-60, 2nd) - Their rotation is very good, but control is a big issue. They allow a lot of walks which could come back to bite them in a year where one loss could cost you the pennant. Arnie Stewart and Wilford Woodworth rival any duo in Detroit, but the Tigers still have a better trio when you combine Kress, Perly and Degal.

3. Indians (84-70, 4th) - After acquiring Bryce Ostrander in the offseason from Boston, the Indians could have the best rotation in the majors. Herman Labombard is finally looking like an ace and Lex Tjeenk-Willink is expected to bounce back from his 13-14, 4.52 ERA performance in 1955 and instead resemble the pitcher who posted sub-3.00 ERA's in 1953 and 1954. Many Indians fans were shocked to see CF Rudel Dietrich traded to Philly (and later to Milwaukee), but they are thrilled to have a potential BOY candidate in Paul Lett to bat behind 3B Dave Lemmings who broke out at age 23 to hit .356, 23 HR, 97 RBI. This team will only get better as youngsters Myron Lilly and Andrew Vamos continue to improve.

4. Athletics (93-61, 3rd) - Once the team strength, the A's rotation could be what separates them from the other three AL contenders. However, they will get a full season out of Martin Gwaltney, who is arguably the best pitcher in the league. Charlton Brown is a monster, considered by many to have the most power the game has ever seen. But the team does not know what to expect with a full season of Chip Sinton in RF, and can rookie Roger McNicholas handle the everyday job in CF? This is still a great team and any of these top four clubs could win the pennant.

5. Orioles (69-85, 5th) - In just his second season, manager Carmack Alford is expected to show improvement in this team. They played well late last season. Their offense lacks power, but they can still be good. Pitching is a question. However, there is still a lot of exciting young players in or near the majors like outfielders Mike Maginnis and Pete Pugliese (acquired this spring from Milwaukee), 1B Henri Gallais (acquired at the end of spring training from Pittsburgh) and pitcher Bill Lovely.

6. White Sox (56-98, 7th) - A solid rotation should keep them competitive, but the offense has a lot of holes. They should improve but less than 90 losses could be a stretch.

7. Red Sox (65-89, 6th) - This team needs a lot of work. There are still star-quality players like Morris Lutske, but the pitching staff is very questionable. Avoiding a 90-loss season will be nearly impossible.

8. Senators (53-101, 8th) - There is talent in the rotation but Lukas Dietrich and Bob Netsky are looking like they won't live up to the hype that preceeded them. However, they are still very young. The bullpen is just horrendous and will cost them some games. There is little to look at on the offense too, but youngsters like Leo Emig and Sam Kreitenberg could find themselves promoted from AAA soon. There is a lot of talent down on the farm, but this club needs a huge makeover... and soon. They will try to avoid a 3rd 100-loss season in 4 years.

National League

The Reds and Cubs are closely matched, but a late spring trade that landed Walter Davis in Cincy gives the Reds the most balanced offense in the league. Pitchers Grady Ingram and Hank Makris look to challenge Chicago's Randy Liebermann and Adam Sardina as the best duo in the NL. The Dodgers are on the rise while the Pirates and Phillies are just trying to find a formula that will get them back to the top without undergoing a rebuilding process.


1. Reds (88-66, 2nd) - They don't have a premiere slugger but the Reds do have four players who can hit 20 or more homeruns. The key to winning the pennant could be how well the bottom of the rotation fares.

2. Cubs (105-49, 1st) - Chicago did win a franchise record 105 games last year, and they have a strong rotation and a very good bullpen. Bobby Johnson will be hard pressed to come near his career high 46 HR from last year. The team is aging and there is very little help on the farm.

3. Dodgers (79-75, 4th) - There is a lot of good pitching on this team, but the offense needs to mature a little more before being a legitimate challenger for the pennant. They will start a rookie behind the plate, second base is an offensive black hole and younsters Chris Kobeck and Ellie Vancini need more time to develop.

4. Pirates (81-73, 3rd) - They could have one of the better offenses in the league, but pitching is a big question. If those pitchers do well, they could push the top teams.

5. Phillies (72-82, 5th) - Will John Nolting ever be a true ace? After losing 22 games last season, the answer looks like a no. If he did pitch up to expectations, the Phils could have one of the best rotations in the NL. They have an interesting lineup, but there is likely not enough punch. With Lonny Arrendale turning 38 this summer, they will soon be in desperate need of a power hitter.

6. Giants (67-87, 6th) - Pitching could get ugly for the Giants. They will need a lot of help from the offense, and there is plenty of potential for scoring runs, especially with the spring addition of Rex Seelinger from the Cubs. Tom Howard looks washed up and George Petty, Mike Fellner, Ervin Thompson and Nick Pursell are 34, 35, 36 and 37 respectively. On a positive note, fans are excited about the chance to see Cameron Hobbs for an entire season.

7. Braves (65-89, 7th) - They have a potentially solid pitching staff and with the addition of Rudel Dietrich from Cleveland by way of Philadelphia, the offense could surprise. However, more than likely, they will struggle but the battle for 6th place could be fierce.

8. Cardinals (59-95, 8th) - They have fallen a long way, but wise trades could make this the quickest rebuilding project we've ever seen. The farm system looks great, and the team is excited about 20-year-old pitcher Charley Harrington who posted a 2.15 ERA last season in 117 IP. This could be the worst offense in the game, but over the next few years help should be on the way as prospects start rolling in.

May 1956

This season has already been full of trades. There were 12 deals done over the offseason, including two big last minute swaps just as spring training ended. First the Braves dealt long time star 1B Ken Chaucer along with pitchers Walter Pond and Roosevelt Wurth to the Yankees for prospects Larry Lent and Earl Hunter. Milwaukee then acquired CF Rudel Dietrich from the Phillies for CF David Mau, SS Joe Johnston and 1B David Lawrence. Milwaukee's new GM, R.W. Jones who built the A's dominant farm system, has come under a lot of fire already, but the Braves are showing results on the field with a 28-23 record that has them in 4th place.

Half way through April, four more trades went down. The biggest player involved was Phillies ace John Nolting who went to Detroit for minor leaguers Rich Maynard and Charley Bier. Then on May 1st, the A's acquired 1B Ed Monchak from the Cardinals. So far the A's, Yankees and Tigers have been very active in adding pieces to their teams in hopes of winning the pennant. This year's AL could be the most competitive pennant race we have seen, in many facets.

At the end of May, the A's led the AL by 1.5 games over New York. Arguably the two best players in the league so far are playing in Kansas City. Pitcher Martin Gwaltney is 10-0 with a AL best 1.81 ERA. RF Charlton Brown leads the AL with a .378 average and 22 homers. His 50 RBI and 39 runs are 2nd in the AL. He has been on fire lately, clubbing 13 homers in the month of May alone, and he is on pace to hit over 60 on the season, something no one has ever done.

In the NL, the Braves have been a surprise but so have the Pirates, who find themselves just a half-game behind the defending NL champion Cubs. Meanwhile, the apparently overhyped Reds are struggling at .500.

In The News

Jan 27: The New York Giants football team of the NFL switched its home games to Yankee Stadium, leading to speculation that the baseball Giants will soon vacate the Polo Grounds as well.

Feb 4: The Major Leagues voted to establish the Andrew Murphy Memorial Award for outstanding pitcher of the year.

Feb 5: New York Mayor Robert Wagner and Brooklyn Borough President Frank Cashmore sponsored a bill to create a Brooklyn Sports Center Authority to build a $30 million sports center in downtown Brooklyn.

Feb 5: Major League owners rejected the players' request for an increase in the minimum salary from $6,000 to $7,000.

Feb 15: The Pirates and the Kansas City A's cancelled an exhibition game in Birmingham, Alabama because of a local ordinance barring black players from playing against white players.

Mar 3: In an effort to keep the Giants in New York, Manhattan Borough President Hulan Jack made plans for a new 110,000-seat stadium over the New York Central railroad tracks, on a 470,000-foot site stretching from 60th to 72nd streets on Manhattan's West Side. The estimated cost of $75 million for the stadium eventually dooms the project.

Mar 4: The Giants and Indians cancel an exhibition game in Meridian, Mississippi because of racial violence in neighboring Alabama.

Mar 11: At Al Lang Field in St. Petersburg, there are no maybes about it as Charlton Brown hit a Grapefruit League pitch from Brian Fritts over the left field wall into the bay. The Yanks top the Cards 4–3. Cardinals outfielder Ogden Wing later said, "no home run has ever cleared my head by as much for as long as I can remember." Brown hit another shot at Al Lang Field on March 20th off Pittsburgh's Henry Cavalluzzo to that landed in the water. Four days later, he clocked a 500-foot shot in Miami on the 24th against the Dodgers' Dewey Coughlin.

April 13: Charlton Brown hit one of the most memorable home runs of his career. In a 8-1 win at New York, he tagged a pitch from Carpenter Erickson that came within 18 inches of leaving Yankee Stadium, something never accomplished by any major leaguer. The ball was still climbing when it caromed off the upper-stand facade, about 396 feet from home plate. Estimates are that the ball could have traveled more than 600 feet.

May 3: Former Cardinals catcher Herman Dunkel died at his Cleveland home after apparently choking on piece of steak. The future HOF candidate hit .304 over his career with 2423 hits and 249 homeruns. He had just retired from the game at the end of last season. He was only 38.

Matt, is this our version of Jimmie Foxx? Obviously very different type players, but was this your inspiration?

Interestingly enough Jungle Jim had just been acquired by St. Louis( 2 days earlier) during the month of May. Very sad to see Dunk pass on that way.

No this is how he really died (except he was actually younger, I had to let him finish his career 1st). Back when I asked people to send me DOD's & how ancestors died, mets sent me that. So most of the time, when you see ancestors die (like Wick this winter) it's for real. Although, for those who never sent me how their ancestors died, they'll probably die as old men in their sleep.

Good to see TWB still going strong. I am sad to see my ancestor hanging up the spikes. Had a pretty darn good career.

SS Bonnard Shadle

16 years of MLB Service

Gold Glove in 1954.

.262/.367/.739

Led the league in doubles once (1945), but didn't appear in the top 10 again.

Will have 1900 games served in the Majors.

Looking forward to seeing my dad in a few short years.
