Hy Cohen Stats

Hy Cohen was born on Thursday, January 29, 1931, in Brooklyn, New York. Cohen was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 17, 1955, with the Chicago Cubs. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Hy Cohen baseball stats page.

"This athlete is Hy Cohen, who started spring training with the Chicago Cubs . Hy, who is six-foot-five, is a right-handed hurler who has already earned a reputation for his brilliant pitching in the minor leagues. During the past season he was with Des Moines in the Western League and he finished with the best earned run average in the minors. His average was 1.88, which is tops in anybody's league. Thus Cohen stands the chance to become the most famous among Jewish athletes in a special way. There has never been a highly successful Jewish pitcher. For a while it looked as if Saul Rogovin might step into the vacant spot. Saul finished one season with the best earned run average in the American League , but Saul cooled off and did not blossom into one of the greats. Many who have seen Hy Cohen in action have great hopes that he can do the trick." - Staff Writer Bill Wolf in The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle (04/08/1955, Jews in Sports , Page 8)
