Anthony Christopher Kubek was a Major League Baseball player who spent his entire nine year career playing for the New York Yankees (1957-1965). Tony, his nickname, was primarily a shortstop and started at that position in thirty-seven World Series games (across six Fall Classics, Bold = World Champions; 1957 , 1958 , 1960 , 1961 , 1962 , 1963 )!

Did you know that when Tony Kubek won the 1957 American League Rookie of the Year , he had only played shortstop in forty-one games that season, the fewest by any shortstop who had received the award before, or since (Tony also had 38 games played at third base, 31 games in left field, 22 games in center field, and one at second base)?

Did you know that Tony Kubek only hit three home runs during his rookie season, but during Game 3 of the 1957 World Series , hit went deep twice? Did you know he was only the second rookie in World Series history to hit two home runs in the same game? Do you know who did it before him? [ Answer ]

Did you know that Tony Kubek started wearing #10 in his sophomore season, and continued using it until his retirement, eight seasons, the second most in Bronx Bomber history, behind hall of famer Phil Rizzuto ? Note: On August 4, 1985, the Yanks (finally) retired the number for Scooter .

Did you know that Tony Kubek led the American League in sacrifice hits (13) in 1959 , along with Jim Landis and Al Pilarcik ? If you need proof that our national pastime is changing, the entire 2018 New York Yankees roster had ten total sacrifice hits during the regular season!

Did you know that Tony Kubek once held the record for most doubles (38) hit in a single season ( 1961 ) by a New York Yankees shortstop? Do you know who broke his record 43 years later? [ Answer ]

Did you know that Tony Kubek was badly injured by a hard hit Bill Virdon grounder during Game 7 of the 1960 World Series (often remembered for the heroics of Bill Mazeroski )? Kubek was hit so hard in the Adams Apple that he was bleeding from his mouth and physically unable to speak, yet he tried to remain in the game!

Tony Kubek Injury, 1960 World Series
Tony Kubek Injury | The New York Daily Post | October 14, 1960

Did you know that when Tony Kubek homered on October 3, 1965 , during his last Major League at-bat, he was only the 12th American League player to end his career with a home run in his final at-bat , and the first New York Yankee to join the club?

Tony Kubek hung up his playing cleats and became an NBC color commentator on the Saturday Game of the Week baseball telecasts. He spent 24 years broadcasting hundreds of historic games. including several All-Star and World Series contests. After NBC lost its baseball rights to CBS, Kubek called games for the Yankees (1990-1994), quitting during the 1994 strike, saying, "I hate what the game's become. The greed, the nastiness. You can be married to baseball, give your heart to it, but when it starts taking over your soul, it's time to say 'whoa'." In 2008, the Baseball Hall of Fame named Kubek the recipient of the 2009 Ford C. Frick Award , an honor given to a broadcaster for major contributions to baseball.
