Mickey Vernon


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: At 6 foot, 2 inches, throwing left and batting left, “Mickey” was made to be a first baseman. He started playing professional ball with Maryland’s Easton Browns back in 1937. By age 21, in 1939, he was a big leaguer with the Senators. It didn’t take too long for him to win the slot at first. In 1941 he took over and batted .299 with 93 runs batted in -- all for a seventh place team. There were 10 games where he batted in 3 or more runs. Given that he’s a hard worker and enjoys the game, Washington fans can expect to see Mickey playing first for a long time!
