Johnny Mize St. Louis Cardinals Knocks It Out Of The Park!

On eBay -
It's all in the feet! These great photos highlight the batting stance of baseball's home run legend Johnny Mize in 1940. 

Mize was the first baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals (1946 -1941), New York Giants (1942, 1946 - 1949), and New York Yankees  (1949-1953). He was a ten time All-Star, five time World Series champion and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981.

Mize set a variety of records including the Major League record for the most times hitting three home runs in one game, which he did six times. He did it five times in the National Leagues and one in the American as well! He was the first player to hit three home runs in a game twice in one season.

Mize hit a total of 359 home runs during his career which included a 3 year break for military service. His 43 home runs in 1940 broke the Cardinal record of 42 and remained intact until Mark McGwire hit 70 in 1988.
