⚾️🎂On October 2, 1932 Maury Wills was born in Washington, D.C.. Maurice, or Sonny as he was called at Cardozo Senior High School (now Cardozo Education Campus) in Washington, first showed up as an All City pitcher in the local Washington Daily News. He played on Sal Hall's undefeated 1948 Cardozo football team that never had any points scored against them. In the 1949-50 school year, 3-sport standout Sonny Wills was named an All City football quarterback, basketball player, and baseball pitcher. Wills began his major league career in 1959 and played in 83 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers. In the 1959 World Series, he played in each of the 6 games, hitting 5-for-20 with a stolen base and 2 runs in the Dodger victory. In Wills' first-full season in 1960, he hit .295 and led the league with 50 stolen bases, being the first NL player to steal 50 bases since Max Carey stole 51 in 1923. In 1962, Wills stole 104 bases to set a new MLB stolen base record, breaking the old modern era mark of 96, set by Ty Cobb in 1915. Wills also stole more bases than all of the other teams that year, the highest total being the Washington Senators' 99. Wills success in base stealing that year led to another remarkable statistic, he was caught stealing just 13 times all season. He hit .299 for the season, led the NL with 10 triples and 179 singles, and was selected the NL MVP over Willie Mays (Mays hit .304 with 49 home runs and 141 runs batted in) by 7 points. Not until Barry Larkin in 1995 would another shortstop win a NL MVP Award. During his MLB career, Wills played in primarily for the Dodgers from 1959 through 1966 and the latter part of 1969 through 1972 as a shortstop and switch-hitter; he played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1967 and 1968, and the Montreal Expos the first part of 1969. Wills was an essential component of the Dodgers' championship teams in the mid-1960s, and is credited for reviving the stolen base as part of baseball strategy. He was an All-Star for 5 seasons, appearing in 7 All-Star Games and was the first MLB All-Star Game MVP in 1962. He also won Gold Gloves in 1961 and 1962. In a 14-year career, Wills batted .281 with 20 home runs, 458 runs batted in, 2,134 hits, 1,067 runs, 177 doubles, 71 triples, 586 stolen bases and 552 bases on balls in 1,942 games. He was a 3-time World Series champion with the Dodgers and led the NL in stolen bases for 6 straight seasons from 1960 to 1965. After retiring, Wills spent time as a baseball analyst at NBC from 1973 through 1977. He also managed in the Mexican Pacific League for 4 seasons, during which time he led the Naranjeros de Hermosillo to the 1970–71 season league championship. He then managed the Seattle Mariners from 1980 to 1981. While Wills had broken Cobb's single season stolen base record in 1962, the NL had increased its number of games played per team that year from 154 to 162. Wills' 97th stolen base had occurred after his team had played its 154th game; as a result, Commissioner Ford Frick ruled that Wills' 104-steal season and Cobb's 96-steal season of 1915 were separate records, just as he had the year before (the AL had also increased its number of games played per team to 162) after Roger Maris had broken Babe Ruth's single season home run record. Both stolen base records would be broken in 1974 by Lou Brock's 118 steals; Brock had broken Cobb's stolen base record by stealing his 97th base before his Cardinals had completed their 154th game. There is aMaury Wills Museum is in Fargo, North Dakota at Newman Outdoor Field, home of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Wills was a coach on the team from 1996 to 1997 and currently serves as a radio color commentator for the Redhawks on KNFL "740 The Fan" with play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels. In 2014, Wills appeared for the first time as a candidate on the National Baseball Hall of Fame's Golden Era Committee election ballot for possible Hall of Fame consideration in 2015 which required 12 votes. Wills missed getting elected by 3 votes. Wills is the father of former major leaguer Bump Wills.🎂⚾️ (Photo Credit: Dodgers Den)
⚾️🎂On September 22, 1927 Tommy Lasorda was born in Norristown, Pennsylvania. Lasorda signed with the Philadelphia Phillies as an undrafted free agent in 1945 and began his professional career that season with the Concord Weavers of the Class D North Carolina State League. He then missed the 1946 and 1947 seasons because of a stint in the U.S. Army. He served on active duty from October 1945 until spring 1947. He returned to baseball in 1948 with the Schenectady Blue Jays of the Canadian–American League. On May 31, 1948, he struck out 25 Amsterdam Rugmakers in a 15-inning game, setting a professional record (since broken), and drove in the winning run with a single. In his next 2 starts, he struck out 15 and 13, gaining the attention of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who drafted him from the Phillies chain and sent him to the Greenville Spinners in 1949. Lasorda made his major league debut on August 5, 1954, for the Dodgers. He made his only start for the Dodgers on May 5, 1955. He pitched for the Dodgers for 2 seasons, then for the Kansas City Athletics for a season after the Athletics bought him from the Dodgers. Kansas City then traded him to the New York Yankees in 1956. Lasorda was first optioned to the Montreal Royals of the International League in 1950. He led Montreal to 4 straight Governors' Cups from 1951 to 1954, and a 5th one in 1958. He pitched for Montreal from 1950 to 1954 and 1958 to 1960 and is the winningest pitcher in the history of the team (107–57) (Lasorda was sent back down to Montreal in 1954 after the Dodgers were forced to keep a young Sandy Koufax on their roster due to the Bonus Rule). The Dodgers released him on July 9, 1960. Lasorda's first off-field assignment with the Dodgers was as a scout from 1961 to 1965. In 1973, Lasorda became the 3rd-base coach for the Dodgers. Lasorda became the Los Angeles Dodgers manager on September 29, 1976, upon Walter Alston's retirement. He compiled a 1,599–1,439 record as Dodgers manager, won 2 World Series championships in (1981 and 1988), 4 National League pennants, and 8 division titles in his 20-year career as the Dodgers manager. His 16 wins in 30 NL Championship games managed were the most of any manager at the time of his retirement. His 61 postseason games managed ranks 4th all-time behind Bobby Cox, Casey Stengel (all of whose games took place during the World Series in baseball's pre-divisional play days), and Joe Torre. He also managed in 4 All-Star games. Lasorda managed 9 players who won the National League Rookie of the Year award. His 1,599 career wins ranks 20th all-time in MLB history. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in 1997 as a manager in his first year of eligibility. The Dodgers retired his uniform number 2 on August 15, 1997. On June 24, 2006, he was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Lasorda was named Vice-President of the Dodgers upon his retirement from managing in 1996. On June 22, 1998 he became the Dodgers interim General Manager upon the mid-season firing of Fred Claire. He resigned as General Manager after the season and was appointed as Senior Vice-President of the Dodgers. After the sale of the team to Frank McCourt, Lasorda took on his current position of Special Advisor to the Chairman where his responsibilities include scouting, evaluating and teaching minor league players, acting as an advisor and ambassador for the Dodgers' international affiliations, and representing the organization at more than 100 speaking engagements and appearances to various charities, private groups and military personnel each year. Since the death of Red Schoendienst in June 2018, Lasorda is the oldest living Hall of Famer.🎂⚾️ (Photo Credit: Dodgers History)
