1952 Topps

From 1947-153 Clark played in 358 games for four different teams. As a rookie, he was a member of the 1947 New York Yankees team that defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers in the World Series. Clark had a hit in two at bats in the the Series. He returned the next year with the Cleveland Indians and once again was part of a championship team as the Tribe defeated the Boston Braves. Clark hit .373 in limited action for the Yankees. He hit .310 in 81 games for Cleveland in 1948. The 81 games played was his career high. He was unable to continue his good work at the plate and spent the next four seasons bouncing around the majors from Cleveland to the Philadelphia A’s and finally to the White Sox where he played his final major league games in 1953. Clark remained in professional baseball until 1958, playing mostly for the Rochester Red Wings, the AAA affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. Prior to breaking into the big leagues, Clark served in the U.S. Army’s combat medical corps in the European Theater of World War II. He died in New Jersey in 2012.
