Gerald Edward "Jerry" Priddy (November 9, 1919 - March 3, 1980), was a second baseman in Major League Baseball for 11 years. He played for the New York Yankees (1941-1942), Washington Senators (1943, 1946-1947), St. Louis Browns (1948-1949), and Detroit Tigers (1950-1953).Priddy appeared in 1,296 major league baseball games. He had a career batting average of .265 with 1,252 hits, 612 runs scored, 541 RBIs, 232 doubles, 624 walks, 639 strikeouts, and 61 home runs.Hall of Famer Phil Rizzuto later said of Priddy's playing career: "I'll never understand what happened with him, other than bad luck and some injuries. Gerry was a better player than I was. He had more power and could play the heck out of second base." (Bill Madden, Pride of October, p. 11.)show more
