Biography | show moreshow less
Full name John Robert Mize Born January 7, 1913, Demorest, Georgia Died June 2, 1993, Demorest, Georgia Buried at Yonah View Memorial Gardens, Demorest, Georgia (Sunset Hills Section 1, Lot J-5, Grave 4) First Game: April 16, 1936; Final Game: September 26, 1953 Bat: Left Throw: Right Height: 6' 2" Weight: 215Selected to the Hall of Fame in 1981 Named first baseman on The Sporting News Major League All-Star Team (1942 and 1947 to 1948) JOHNNY MIZE This article was written by Jerry Grillo and is presented in part, courtesy of the Society for American Baseball Research In 1947, Johnny Mize did something unmatched in baseball history. He became the first and, so far, only player to hit 50 or more home runs in a season while striking out less than 50 times, one of the game's extraordinary records.Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, etc., etc. – none of baseball's best all-around hitters ever combined meticulous bat control with brute power the way Mize did in '47, back when the New York Giants carried two trunks of bats when they hit the road. "One trunk was for Johnny Mize," said Buddy Blattner, Mize's roommate on the Giants. "The other was for the rest of the team."So yes, Mize had plenty of bats, and he knew how to use every one of them. This was his arsenal, his black bag, and throughout a 15-year Hall of Fame baseball career the Georgian used his tools with the precision of a surgeon and the stylistic beauty of an artist. And, trusting in his tools, he had unfailing confidence in his ability to hit any pitcher. Built like a slugger (6'2", 215 pounds in his prime), Mize was a line drive hitter who could hit for distance, to all fields and generally for high average, especially earlier in his career. "Nobody had a better, smoother, easier swing than John," said Don Gutteridge, who roomed with Mize on the Cardinals. "It was picture perfect."
