1959 Topps

Kazanski broke into the big leagues in 1953 with the Phillies and would remain with the club through 1958. A solid fielder, he was a valuable asset for Philadelphia as a reserve infielder. He played in 117 games in 1956, the most in his career. A career .217 hitter, Kazanski hit .211 in 1956, scoring 35 runs and driving in 34. On August 8 of that season, Kazanski hit an inside-the-park grand slam against the Giants. He also started a triple play in that game. (Wikipedia) Kazanski was traded in 1959 to the Milwaukee Braves who sent him to the minors. He never returned to the majors, retiring in 1964. At the conclusion of his career, Kazanski coached for the Detroit Tigers and at the University of Detroit Mercy.
