Mike Sandlock

1953 Topps

Sandlock played in 195 major league games, for three different teams, in four seasons that fell between 1942 and 1953. His first taste of big-league action came in 1942 when he got into two games for the Boston Braves. He was back up with Boston in 1944, seeing action in 30 contests. He played in 80 games the following season for the Brooklyn Dodgers, hitting .282 with his only two major league home runs. After a handful of games with the Dodgers in 1945, Sandlock again disappeared to the minor leagues before resurfacing with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1953. Sandlock was a .240 hitter for his career with 31 RBI and 34 runs scored.


Sandlock was the oldest living major league baseball player when he filled this out, so it is hard to read. I believe his answers are: 1. Bill Dickey, 2. Warren Spahn, 3. Boston Braves, 4. Ebbets Field, 5. My first home run (not sure about the rest of that). He lived to be 100-years old and died on April 4, 2016 in Cos Cob, Connecticut.
