Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Whitey Lockman : For parts of three seasons, he was the manager of the Chicago Cubs . 'I took over for Leo ( Durocher ) in '72 and had them in 1973, and part of 1974. We had some good ballplayers back then— Ferguson Jenkins and Milt Pappas and Burt Hooton and Rick Reuschel on the pitching staff...' He ticked off the names from the past as quickly as if he was giving the names of his children. '... Billy Williams , Glenn Beckert , Don Kessinger , Ron Santo , Rick Monday and Randy Hundley —that was a pretty good time. I don't know why we didn't win it; the only thing I can figure is mismanagement.' he said, offering an infectious chuckle." - Author John C. Skpper in Take Me Out to the Cubs Game: 35 Former Ballplayers Speak of Losing at Wrigley (McFarland Publishing, 08/15/2000, Page 175)

Carroll Walter Lockman was a Major League Baseball player with the New York Giants (1945, 1947-1957), St. Louis Cardinals (1956), San Francisco Giants (1958), Baltimore Orioles (1959), and Cincinnati Reds (1959-1960). When Whitey, his nickname, took the field on July 5, 1945 , he hit a home run during his first career at-bat , the youngest player in baseball history to ever do so!

On October 3, 1951 , during The Shot Heard Round The World , most everyone remembers that Bobby Thomson homered off relief pitcher Ralph Branca to help the Giants the National League pennant, but Whitey Lockman was standing on second at that time, and he was the tying run. Lockman's double, hit moments earlier, had driven in Alvin Dark , made the score 4-2, and prompted the Brooklyn Dodgers to make a call to the bullpen!

Did you know that when Whitey Lockman walked off the field on September 29, 1957 , he was the last player in a New York Giants uniform to wear #25 in a regular season game? Did you know he was the first to wear #25 in a San Francisco Giants uniform, when he took the field on April 18, 1958 ?
