Biographical Information[edit]

Art Jorgens holds the all-time record for World Series games in which he was on the roster without ever appearing in a game. He was on the post-season roster for the New York Yankees in 1932 and from 1936 to 1939 (23 games total), but never appeared in a post-season game for them.

Art is one of only three major leaguers born in Norway (through 2006). He played his entire major league career - eleven seasons - with the New York Yankees. He came up one year after Bill Dickey, and was a teammate of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and later Joe DiMaggio.

Orville Jorgens, his brother, was born three years after Art. Orville was born in Rockford, IL rather than in Norway.

After his baseball career was over, Art worked many years in retail.
