Tom Ferrick

A 6’2″ 220-lb reliever, Ferrick saved 56 games in a career interrupted by three years of service in WWII. For the 1947 Senators, he led the AL with seven relief losses. In 1950 his nine relief wins topped the AL. Joining the Yankees that June, he was the man Casey Stengel turned to when the manager lost faith in bullpen ace Joe Page. On the way to the pennant, Ferrick won eight games and saved nine in just 30 appearances. Working one inning in relief, he won Game Three of New York’s World Series sweep of the Phillies.
