Did you know that on May 3, 1951 , in only his sixth start (his first at second base), Gil McDougald hit a triple and a grand slam in the ninth inning which tied an American League record for runs batted in during an inning with six (since broken by A-Rod )?

Gil Mcdougall Baseball Card
Gil McDougald | 1958 Topps Baseball Card (#20) | Baseball Almanac Collection
Gil McDougald was the first New York Yankees player to win a Rookie of the Year Award and the first rookie in Major League history to hit a grand slam during a World Series game after he went deep in the third inning of Game 5 of the 1951 World Series off Larry Jansen .

Versatile is truly an understatement when used to describe Gil McDougald who went to six All-Star Games ( 1952 , 1956 , 1957 , 1958 , 1959 & 1959 ) at three different positions (only played shortstop though in three of the six) AND he played in eight World Series ( 1951 , 1952 , 1953 , 1955 , 1956 , 1957 , 1958 & 1960 ), won five rings, and fielded thirty-one games at third base, fourteen at shortstop and eleven at second base during Fall Classics .
