Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Albert Wesley Lakeman (December 31, 1918 - May 25, 1976) was a catcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Cincinnati Reds (1942-1947)), Philadelphia Phillies (1947-1948), Boston Braves (1949) and Detroit Tigers (1954). Lakeman batted and threw right-handed. Nicknamed "Moose," he was a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. The light-hitting Lakeman was a fine defensive catcher as he took responsibility for getting the most out of his pitchers. The high point of his major league career was serving as an efficient, reliable backup for Andy Seminick (Phillies), Del Crandall (Braves) and Frank House (Tigers). His most productive season came in 1945 with Cincinnati, when he posted career-highs in games played (76), batting average (.256), home runs (eight), RBI (31) and runs (22).show more
