Yankee Stadium Legacy: #18 Tommy Henrich

Tommy Henrich was part of a talented New York Yankees trio that included Joe DiMaggio and Charlie Keller, making up one of the best outfields of the time. The Yankees outfield of the 1940's made opposing pitchers have a lot of sleepless nights. Henrich showed his strength specifically in 1941 by hitting a career high 31 home runs. In 1948 Henrich led the American League with 81 extra base hits for the Yankees.
