1955 Topps #60 - Dean Stone

Dean Stone (b. 1930) played in the majors from 1953 - 1957, 1959, 1962 - 1963 for the Senators, Red Sox, Cardinals, Colt .45s, White Sox and Orioles. Primarily a reliever, he retired with a record of 29-39 and a 4.47 ERA. He was an All Star in 1954 and is known for having recorded the win in that game without retiring a single batter; he came on in the 8th to face Duke Snider and gunned Red Schoendienst down at the plate as he was attempting to steal home. The AL went on to score 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th and our old friend Virgil Trucks came on and recorded the save in the 9th.
