Carey was a $60,000 Yankee bonus baby out of St. Mary's College (CA). He was a notorious eater; because of him, the Yankees stopped allowing players to sign for meals. Carey became New York's regular third baseman in 1954, hitting .302. In July 1955 he helped turn four double plays in a game, tying a ML record for third basemen. The emergence of Clete Boyer made Carey expendable, and he was traded to Kansas City for Bob Cerv in 1960. (EW)
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
May 2, 1954: At Yankee Stadium, Detroit's Bill Hoeft pitches a 5-inning one hitter to win 40. A 5th inning double by Andy Carey is the only safety for the Yanks as rain shortens to contest. The Yanks take the opener, 124, scoring six runs in the 3rd inning. Allie Reynolds is the winner with six innings of relief.

November 3, 1954: The Yankees tour Japan and draw a record crowd of 64,000 when they play the first game against the All-Japan Stars in Osaka. Andy Carey slugs 13 home runs, and Elston Howard bats .468 on the 25-game tour.

May 11, 1955: At Yankee Stadium, Early Wynn survives solo homers by Andy Carey and Mickey Mantle to give Cleveland a 43 victory.

May 12, 1956: Orioles lefty Don Ferrarese allows no hits through eight innings against the Yankees, but Andy Carey and Hank Bauer open the 9th with singles. Ferrarese holds on for a two-hit, 10, victory.

May 12, 1957: At Baltimore, 3B Andy Carey hits two homers for New York, while Mickey Mantle's tie breaking clout in the 8th gives them a 43 win over the O's.

May 19, 1960: The Yankees send SS Andy Carey to the A's for slugger Bob Cerv. Cerv had been with the Yanks for five years before going to KC where he banged 38 home runs in 1958 and was chosen as the American League left fielder over Ted Williams. Cerv will be claimed in the expansion draft in 1960 and the Yanks will again reacquire him.

June 10, 1961: Pitchers Ray Herbert and Don Larsen, 3B Andy Carey, and OF Al Pilarcik of the A's go to the White Sox for pitchers Bob Shaw and Gerry Staley and outfielders Wes Covington and Stan Johnson.

March 24, 1962: The Phillies trade holdout 3B Andy Carey and IF Lou Vassie to the White Sox for P Cal McLish. Chicago then trades Carey to the Dodgers for IF Ramon Conde and Jim Koranda.
