 Biographical Information
Dick Kryhoski was a first baseman during seven Major League seasons. He served in the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II (GB). He played for the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, St. Louis Browns and Baltimore Orioles from 1949 to 1955.
Kryhoski and Roy Sievers shared first base for the St. Louis Browns in 1953, the last year of the team's existence. On July 16th that year, the Browns tied a record with three successive home runs in the 1st inning, by Clint Courtney, Kryhoski, and Jim Dyck. Their five bases-empty homers in three innings that day established a new mark as they beat the Yankees, 8-6. After the Browns had become the Baltimore Orioles, Kryhoski was involved in baseball's biggest trade ever, a 17-player, two-part 1954 deal between the Orioles and Yankees.
In 2005, he attended the annual St. Louis Browns player alumni get-together in St. Louis, MO. The following year, he was still active in the Detroit Tigers alumni association and other baseball-related organizations. Dick died of cancer on April 10, 2007, at his home in Beverly Hills, Michigan.
