Al Rosen made his professional baseball debut on September 10, 1947 with the Cleveland Indians at the age of 23. During his 10-year career with the Indians, Rosen was a power hitting third baseman who hit in 192 homeruns and 717 RBIs in 1, 044 games, and amassed a lifetime batting average of .285. He was a four-time All-Star game selection between 1952 and 1955, and was unanimously voted the American League's Most Valuable Player in 1953, after leading the league with 43 homeruns and 145 RBIs. Rosen went on to have a hugely successful career as a baseball executive, with the Yankees, Astros and Giants. He is considered one of the best all-time Jewish players to have played the game, along with Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax.
