Don Gutteridge

The high point of Gutteridge’s career came on his second day as a Cardinal, in 1936. In a double-header in Ebbets Field, the rookie got six hits, including an inside-the-park HR, and stole home twice. One of 70 players to play for both the Cardinals and Browns, Gutteridge was a pepperpot second baseman on the Browns’ lone pennant-winner in 1944. On June 30, 1944, Gutteridge took part in five double plays in one game, setting a since-surpassed AL second basemen’s record. Coaching for the White Sox when Al Lopez retired on May 4, 1969, Gutteridge replaced him and stayed at the helm until he was fired in September 1970.
