Al Rosen Stats

Al Rosen was born on Friday, February 29, 1924, in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Rosen was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 10, 1947, with the Cleveland Indians.

"He (Al Rosen) came up with two black eyes. His eyes were swollen shut--completely shut. After the game we got on the train (in Cleveland) and went to Philly. When we got there the next morning, Rosen couldn't see at all. So the trainer took him out to the park in the morning and put ice packs on his face. Rosen spent the whole afternoon on the training table until finally he could open his eyes. He played that night and got four hits." - Cleveland Indians manager Al Lopez in Baseball Digest (September 1992, Bill Chastain, "Why the Big Surge in Major Leagues' Disabled Lists?")
