Tom Tresh was traded by the New York Yankees to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Ron Woods on June 14, 1969. Later that same season, the Bronx Bombers called-up a rookie catcher named Thurman Munson , who made his Major League debut on August 8, 1969 . Both players wore #15 with the Yankees , the only number either of them ever used (in NY), and after Tugboat's untimely death in 1979, the Yankees retired #15 , never to be worn again in New York .

Tom Tresh, after he was traded to the Tigers , did wear #4 during his final season in the big leagues. Maybe it had something to do with his father, Mike Tresh , who only wore number #15 (also) with the Chicago White Sox , but after being traded to the Cleveland Indians he wore #11 , his final season in the big leagues.

Did you know that Tom Tresh, a switch-hitter, hit a home run from each side of the plate in the same game on September 1, 1963 , on July 13, 1964 , and June 6, 1965 ? Tresh was only the second New York Yankee to go deep batting lefty and righty in the same game, joining Mickey Mantle , who had accomplished the feat ten times in his career.

Mark Koenig , in 1926, broke the New York Yankees record for most plate appearances in a season by a rookie (679), set by Earle Combs who had 674 in 1925. Joe DiMaggio (669 plate appearances in 1936) and Billy Johnson (655 plate appearances in 1943) challenged the record, but it remained intact until 1962, when Tom Tresh had 712 plate appearances - setting a new record for the Bronx Bombers . Since Tresh, only two Yankee rookies have truly challenged the mark, Derek Jeter (654 in 1996) and Hideki Matsui (695 in 2003).
