" Casey on Siebern : I'll tell you one thing. I'm not asking waivers on him and you can print that. I know he's lost some games in the outfield for us before. He's a nice kid and I know he'll worry over this (losing 4 fly balls in the sun). He's playing the toughest left field in baseball, don't forget. He hit .300 for me. He's good at getting walks and he's good at going from first to third. I think he did real good his first full year in the majors. He's not an easy man to get out." - New York Yankees Manager (1949-1960) Casey Stengel in The Morning Call (Jack Hand, Norm Siebern: Only His First Year; Besides, He Can Hit , 10/06/1958, Page 14)

Norman Leroy Siebern was a Major League Baseball player for the New York Yankees (1956, 1958-1959), Kansas City Athletics (1960-1963), Baltimore Orioles (1964-1965), California Angels (1966), San Francisco Giants (1967), and Boston Red Sox (1967-1968). Norm, his nickname, is often remembered for being part of the seven-player trade that sent him, Don Larsen , and Hank Bauer to the A's , in exchange for Roger Maris (who broke Babe Ruth's single season home run record two years later).

Norm Siebern won the inaugural James P. Dawson Award in 1956, an annual honor given to the New York Yankees rookie player who had the best Spring Training performance.

Norm Siebern took his position in left field 127 times in 1958, alongside Mickey Mantle (150 games in centerfield) and Hank Bauer (120 games in right field). When the season ended, Rawlings awarded Al Kaline ( Detroit Tigers ), Jimmy Piersall ( Boston Red Sox ), and Siebern with Gold Glove Awards , the latter being the first ever won by a New York Yankees outfielder.

Did you know that Norm Siebern was the first Athletics player in franchise history to take the field in 162 games at any position, accomplishing the "Ironman" fielding feat at first base in 1962 -- and, no Athletics first baseman since has ever matched it? Too easy? Did you know he was also the first player in baseball history to play 162 games at first base from any team?
