The Tragedy Of Herb Gorman

Herb Gorman

The 1953 season was a frustrating one for a player named Alan Richter. His short big league career came to an end with one at-bat with the Boston Red Sox. Two years earlier Richter had been brought up from the minors late in the season and saw some action at shortstop. Richter totaled 11 major league at-bats and managed one hit, for an .091 average.

Richter spent 1952 playing in the minor leagues for San Diego where he was a teammate and good friend of Herb Gorman’s. By the way, Gorman’s two hits in two at-bats on the last day of his life gave him a perfect .1000 batting average for the season.
