andy carey

Andy Carey is one of the least-remembered regulars on the great New York Yankees teams of the 1950's that often won the World Series. Carey was the regular third baseman from 1954-58. He led the American League with 11 triples in 1955. The Yankees won the World Series four times while he was with them.

He closed out his major league career with the 1962 Los Angeles Dodgers who won 102 games.

Gil McDougald was the third baseman when Carey came up, but by 1954 Gil had moved over to second base to accomidate Carey.

He married actress Lucy Marlow in 1955. His hobby was photography. After baseball he went into the brokerage business in California. Source: Glamor Girl Lucy Marlow.
