First baseman Jimmie Foxx (1907-1967) was one of baseball’s power hitters. A home run he hit in Yankee Stadium landed in the third tier of seats in left field, destroying a seat during its flight. “Double X” once drove a pitch so far out of double-decked Comiskey Park that it landed in a playground 600 feet from home plate.
 
Jimmie Foxx was just 16 years old when he began playing baseball professionally. His first major league hit was recorded in 1925 when he was with the Philadelphia Athletics. In 1933, he won his second consecutive Most Valuable Player award.
 
During the 1932 season, Foxx was closing in on the home run record Babe Ruth set in 1927. He ended up with 58 homers, just three shy of a new record. The 534 hits he smashed out of the park in his career make Foxx one of the leading home run hitters in history. He hit 30-plus homers a record 12 consecutive seasons.
 
Foxx finished up his major league career with the Phillies in 1945. By then, he had played every position except second base. Several tragedies struck Foxx later in life, including a fall down a flight of stairs that broke his back and left his left side partially paralyzed. Foxx’s skills at the plate as well as behind it earned him a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1951.
