Ed Mierkowicz Stats

Ed Mierkowicz was born on Thursday, March 6, 1924, in Wyandotte, Michigan. Mierkowicz was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 31, 1945, with the Detroit Tigers. 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 Ed Mierkowicz baseball stats page.

"But with the Tigers holding a commanding 9-3 lead entering the bottom of the ninth, and aging star left fielder Hank Greenberg ailing, (Ed) Mierkowicz suddenly found himself trotting out of the dugout and onto the Wrigley Field grass. Since making his big league debut five weeks before, he played in only 10 games. Mierkowicz, who idolized Greenberg as a boy in Wyandotte, Mich., ran toward Wrigley's ivy-covered walls. He remembered his knees were shaking. The Cubs' first batter in the bottom of the ninth, Roy Hughes , stepped in and promptly cracked one toward left field. It dropped in front of Mierkowicz, who fielded it cleanly and tossed it back to the infield." - Chicago Tribune Staff Writer Patrick M. O'Connell (02/24/16, A Tiger's tale: Sole survivor of Cubs' last Series, 71 years ago , Source )
