Bob Stephenson


Stephenson spent one season playing for the St. Louis Cardinals, appearing in 67 games and hitting .243. The year was 1955 and he primarily played shortstop for the Cardinals. In 111 at bats he hit three doubles, scored 19 runs and drove in six runs. Stephenson’s professional career lasted from 1950-1956. His .243 average with the Cardinals in 1955 was actually the highest mark of any season of his career.


Stephenson’s first game came on April 14, 1955 at home against the Milwaukee Braves. He entered the game at shortstop for Alex Grammas and had two at bats but did not get a hit. The Cardinals won the game 8-7.

Stephenson is currently one of the 100-oldest-living players.
