Player Information Page



Affectionately known as the "Schnoz", Lombardi was a tremendous hitter with a lifetime batting average of .306. Lombardi was so slow afoot that infielders quite often played back on the outfield grass, stopping many a screeching line drive that would normally been hits. Many experts believe that with even average footspeed Ernie would have had hit 50 points higher. Lombardi was 6'3" and 230 lbs., with paws so huge that he could easily palm 7 baseballs in his right hand. He was elected posthumously to Baseball's Hall of Fame in 1986, nearly nine years after his death.
