        No, I did not.

        Hint- During my post-season moment, I wore the same number as another player who had a post-season moment of his own.

        • Was the majority of your career with the Red Sox?
          Sox fans are the only ones who seem to remember the 1959 World Series happened.

              Did you have a team in which you played 50%+ of your career (by PA's)?

                        Yes, I am Vic Wertz. Here are the clues-
                        1) From the outhouse to the penthouse- In 1954, Wertz was traded from the Orioles, (Nee St. Louis Browns), one of the American League doormats, to the pennant-winning Indians.
                        2) Baptism under fire, in a way- When Wertz came over to the Indians, manager Al Lopez asked him to play first base. Wertz, who was an outfielder, had never played first base before.
                        3) Less Filling!.....During and after his playing days ended, Wertz owned a Miller Beer distributorship in suburban Detroit.
                        4) If it hadn't been for the fish that got away- In the first game of the 1954 World Series, Wertz had four hits- a triple, two singles, and a double- but was best known for his long drive that landed in Willie Mays's glove ("The Catch.") Had the ball gotten by Mays, Wertz would have set a WS record with five hits in a game. (As it turned out, Paul Molitor did it 28 years later with the Brewers.)
                        5) You can get something for nothing- Wertz, his trade value diminished after a slow start, was traded to the Indians for pitcher Bob Chakales, a spare part on their pitching-rich staff. He remained a spare part in Baltimore.
                        and, 6) During my post-season moment........... Wertz wore number 23 for the Indians, the same number that Bobby Thomson wore when he hit "The Shot Heard 'Round the World" three years earlier.

                        Good job!

                          Good clues...I still wasn't on the right track, as I didn't know 2, 3, 5, 6. Didn't remember 1. Would have taken forever for me to get this one.

                            Once we narrowed it down to the Indians of that era that did not win the World Series, Wertz came to mind immediately based on what else I knew from the hints and answers.
