WSC All-Stars: Luke Appling 1946

Card #26 - Luke Appling

Luke made it back to the All-Star game for the first time since 1943. Like last time, Appling made the team as a reserve shortstop. This time, Luke got the call, pinch hitting for Cleveland Indians pitcher Bob Feller to lead off the bottom of the third inning at Boston's Fenway Park.

Appling hit a grounder to Chicago Cubs pitcher Claude Passeau, who threw to New York Giants first baseman Johnny Mize for the first out. Luke was replaced by Detroit Tigers pitcher Hal Newhouser to start the fourth inning. The AL All-Stars won handily, 12-0.
