Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Albert Francis "Al" Gionfriddo (March 8, 1922 - March 14, 2003) was a slightly built 5' 6" and 165 lb. professional baseball outfielder who batted and threw left-handed. He made his major league debut on September 23, 1944 at the age of 22 with the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was a career .266 hitter whose best year was in 1945 when he hit .284 with 9 triples and 74 runs scored for the Pirates. He played in the majors for four years. He was acquired by the Brooklyn Dodgers from the Pirates midway through the 1947 season, and he is most famous for his heroic catch of a drive off the bat of the New York Yankee's Joe DiMaggio in Game 6 of the 1947 World Series.show more
