                        George Metkovich

                        Here is a color image for the Red Sox lead-off hitter and right-fielder. Metkovich's playing time reduced significantly after the acquisition of Wally Moses.

                        The color option I have added to the earlier post for Metkovich. Similarly color options have been added to the previous posts for Bobby Doerr, Dave Ferriss, Dom DiMaggio, Earl Johnson, Johnny Pesky, Pinky Higgins & Ted Williams.

                        All images posted are specifically from 1946. Missing are 1946 images for Ben Steiner, Bill Butland, Jim Wilson & Mike Ryba.

                              Stan Musial

                              Starting first-baseman and 3rd place hitter Stan Musial. His best season so far in his career. Gained his second MVP award. Led the league with .365 average and in runs (124) , hits (228), doubles (50) and triples (20). Also led the League in total bases (366) , slugging (.587) and OPS (1.021) while driving in 103 and compiling a .434 on-base percentage. Transferred to first-base mid season to replace the slumping Dick Sisler. 1946 was Musial's last World Series and hit a disappointing .222

                                Enos Slaughter

                                Starting right-fielder and clean-up hitter Enos Slaughter. Hit a career high 18 home runs while leading the League with 130 RBIs. Starred in game 4 of the World Series going 4 for 6, scoring 4 times. Spectacularly threw out Rudy York in the sixth innings when he attempted to score on a fly ball with the bases loaded and 1 out. In game 5 was hit on the right elbow by a pitch from Joe Dobson, an injury that subsequently turned out to be a broken elbow. Stole second base despite the pain. The left handed hitter insisted on playing the following 2 games and scored the winning run famously in Game 7 in the 8th inning.
