[edit] Biographical Information

Tall Tony Kubek was a free-swinger who never walked more than 31 times in any season. A solid performer for the Yankees during his first few years, he played in six World Series, but missed the 1964 World Series through injury. He was the 1957 AL Rookie of the Year.

After he retired as a player, Kubek was a long-time broadcaster, teamed with Joe Garagiola for many years for NBC's Saturday afternoon Game of the Week. He also broadcast games for the Toronto Blue Jays during that time, and broadcast games for the New York Yankees after NBC Baseball ended. He broadcast eleven World Series for NBC TV between 1969 and 1982, and fourteen League Championship Series between 1969 and 1989. He received the Ford Frick Award from the Hall of Fame in 2009.

Kubek's father Tony Kubek Sr., played out field in the minors from 1931 to 1936, mostly with the Milwaukee Brewers (AA).
