Playing his entire career with the New York Yankees, Tommy Henrich had one of the best nicknames in sports, “The Clutch”. This stemmed from his World Series exploits most significantly hitting the first ever walk off Home Run in World Series history (Game 1 in 1949). Basically, while there may have been bigger stars around Henrich, this was the guy you wanted at the plate when it counted the most.
A five-time All-Star and four-time World Series Champion, Henrich averaged over 20 Home Runs in each season and retired with a very good Slash Line of .282/.382/.491. The cerebral base runner would also lead the American League in Runs Scored once and Triples twice.
