Felipe Alou Stats

"'The day I joined the Giants was one of the most important days of my life,' he (Felipe Alou) recalled. 'That was the day my new teammate, Al Worthington , introduced me to Jesus Christ. I don't believe in accidents. I believe that was a man who was waiting for me.' Alou soon impressed sufficiently to win the right field job from heralded Willie Kirkland , who eventually was traded. Felipe's best year in San Francisco was 1962, as the Giants won the pennant. He batted .316 with 25 home runs. At the time, manager Alvin Dark claimed he was the National League's second base outfielder. 'After you get past Willie Mays , he's as good as anyone,' Dark said." - Author Tom Schott in The Giants Encyclopedia (Sports Publishing LLC, 'Chapter Four: Players Roll Call,' 1999)

On September 15, 1963 , Felipe Alou started the game playing in right field. In the seventh inning, Felipe changed positions from right to left field after Jesus Alou replaced Willie McCovey (who started in left). In the eighth inning, Felipe changed positions from left to center field after Matty Alou replaced Willie Mays (who started in center). The San Francisco Giants outfield at that point was Matty (LF), Felipe (CF) and Jesus (RF) - the first, and through today, only all-brother outfield trio in baseball history.
