Baseball Almanac Top Quote

June 30, 1943 , the St. Louis Browns played the first of a series of 'Baseball for Victory' games at their home field, Sportman's Park. Proceeds from the game went to benefit the National War funds; consequently, every spectator, player, umpire, and member of the press was required to buy a ticket. Zarilla paid his way into the game and smacked two hits (off Athletics right-hander Orie Arntzen ) as the Browns went on to defeat the Mackmen, 3-1. Five years later, a grinning Zarilla said, 'Best money I ever spent.'" - Researcher Maurice Bouchard on SABR Baseball Biography Project (SABR.org, 'Al Zarilla', Source )

Did you know that Al Zarilla was the first player in American League history to hit two triples during the same inning ? On July 13, 1946 , Zeke - during the fourth inning - hit his first triple off Lou Knerr , then in the same frame, hit his second triple off Lee Griffeth .

Al Zarilla, Two Triples in Same Inning
Al Zarilla Triples History ( Box Score ) | Asbury Park Press | July 14, 1946 | Page 8
Al Zarilla, who served in the United States Army from 1944 to 1946 during World War II, also appears in the Doubles Record Book as he was only the eighth player in American League history to hit four doubles in a game ( June 8, 1950 ).

In 1949, Al Zarilla appeared in his first major motion picture, The Stratton Story (Al played the part of a Yankee ballplayer, IMDB.com ), and in 1952, Zarilla appeared in his second film, The Winning Team (Al played the part of a ballplayer, IMDB.com ).
