Dick Allen

Dick Allen

Dick Allen, the NL Rookie of the Year for 1964, played in all 162 games and was one of only two players—the others were second baseman Tony Taylor and right fielder Johnny Callison— whom Mauch wrote into the lineup nearly every day. Twice over the course of three games, with the score tied, Mauch had Allen lay down a sacrifice bunt. Allen did so successfully both times, but neither effort led to a run, and it was by one run that the Phillies lost both games. (COURTESY OF THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES)
