    1946 AL ROY Ennis & Kiner

    I will be posting images of Kiner and Ennis from 1946 when I get round to posting complete images of their respective teams. However, I appreciate that may take awhile. So I post the best 1946 image of Kiner I have seen and will give you a source for the best 1946 image of Ennis I have seen. That source will be a colorization form the baseball-birthdays site which is the image I propose to utilise.

    The 1946 ROY is an interesting matter. When I was listing the Tigers 1946 lineup I must say I was highly perplexed why Evers hit 3rd and Cullenbine hit 6th as all the evidence in respect of their individual contributions would indicate that the team would have been better served if their positions in the lineup was reversed. That said I don't believe there is any candidate who can approach the claims of Evers for that award. The strongest possible alternatives would appear to be Chuck Stevens and Gene Handley.

    Phil Cavarretta

    The previous season's NL MVP Phil Cavarretta was the Cubs regular clean-up hitter in 1946. Mainly positioned at first-base in 1945 he was most often a right-fielder in 1946. Named to the All-Star game he repeated his total of 10 triples from the previous season and ended the year with a .401 on-base mark.

    Roy Weatherly

    31 year old left handed hitting outfielder Roy Weatherly returned to the Yankees 3 years after his previous appearance. He only had 2 at bats despite a .500 batting average.

    Hank Majeski and Jake Wade also appeared for the Yankees as far as I am aware no photos exist for either in a Yankees uniform.

    Bud Metheny

    1946 was 31 year old left handed batter Bud Metheny's 4th consecutive season with the Yankees. In all of the previous seasons he had appeared in over 100 games but in his final MLB season he appeared in just 3 games failing to get a hit in 3 at bats. Signed by the Red Sox he never appeared for them. The last player to represent the Yankees with the number 3 on his back.
