Super spent 13 seasons in the big leagues, all of them with the Philadelphia A’s. He broke in as a 25-year old in 1941, hitting .245. After two more seasons in the majors, Suder’s baseball career was put on hold as he joined the army where he served in Europe during World War II. He returned to the A’s in 1946, hitting .281 that season. His best year came in 1949 when he batted .267 for Philadelphia. He slugged 10 home runs that year, which was a career-best, as were his 75 RBI. Suder stuck with the A’s through their move to Kansas City in 1955, but he saw action in just 26 games that season and retired at the end of it.
As he notes, Suder played his first nine seasons for the legendary owner and manager of the Philadelphia Athletics, Connie Mack. Suder died in Aliquippa, PA on November 14, 2006.
