    Wally Pipp


    When the Yankees won three straight pennants in 1921-23, Pipp was their solid, sure-handed first baseman. When they again won three in a row in 1926-28, he read about it in the Cincinnati Enquirer. In 1925, his eleventh Yankee year, he had asked for a day off because of a headache. A beaning in practice a few days later prolonged his hiatus. By the time he was fit, Lou Gehrig owned his position (for 2,130 consecutive games). Pipp, a good hitter with three .300 seasons and six 90-plus RBI years, was shunted to the Reds and obscurity. (JK)
