Did you know that Jerry Lumpe was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 1994, along with fellow baseball playing Missourians and/or Royals (enshrined that same year) George Brett , Whitey Herzog , Buck O'Neil and Frank White ?

Jerry Lumpe

Lumpe signed a professional contract as a second baseman with the New York Yankees in 1951. Lumpes’ first team was the Yankee affiliate McAlester, Oklahoma. The following year, Lump played Joplin, MO. During this time, he attended Southwest Missouri State University in the winter and played on two NAIA National Championship basketball teams. In 1953, Jerry played triple-A baseball with the Kansas City Blues, a Yankee affiliate and the Binghampton Triplets. He made it to the major leagues with the New York Yankees in 1956, after a two year stint in the Army. As a member of the Yankees , Lumpe won two World Series ( 1957 and 1958 | Baseball Almanac Note: The Yanks actually lost the 1958 Fall Classic ). During the 1959 season, Lumpe was traded from New York to the Kansas City Athletics, where he played through the 1963 season. Lumpe was an All-Star in 1964 for the Detroit Tigers and played there until his retirement in 1967.

Jerry Lumpe grew up a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals . His father, W.J. Lumpe, honored his favorite pitcher, Dizzy Dean , by making his son's middle name Dean. The father-son duo could not actually hear the Cards on the radio station (KMOX) at their home so Jerry said, "We got the station in Sedalia, but it didn’t go very far, but there was a hill about five miles north of town, and we'd sit up there in the car listening to the game, my dad and I. You tell the kids that now, and they think you’re crazy."
