Posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame via the Veterans Committee in 1991, Tony Lazzeri was a very popular member of the famed Murderers Row lineup that the Yankees had in the late ’20s and early ’30s. Over a twelve-year stint with New York, Lazzeri accumulated 169 Home Runs with 1,784 Hits and a .294 Batting Average and was a major part of assisting New York to win five World Series Championships.
Historically speaking, Lazzeri is the only baseball player to hit a natural cycle (single, double, triple, and followed by Home Run) that was punctuated by a Grand Slam. That alone could put him on many lists.
Statistically, Lazzeri accrued 1,784 Hits with 169 Home Runs and a .293 Batting Average as a Yankee, and the Veteran's Committee inducted him into the Hall of Fame in 1991.
