Sports and Torts: Dr. Bobby Brown

Back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for ballplayers to have a second job. However, a player playing pro ball and attending medical school is to say the least, highly usual. We’ll talk with the Golden Boy about his days with the Yankees, leaving the diamond for a Doctor’s office, and returning to the sport as the president of the AL.

Bobby Brown
Brown - also nicknamed "The Golden Boy" during his playing career - attended Stanford University and UCLA before receiving his medical degree from Tulane University. During his time at Stanford, he and another student were involved in the rescue of a Coast Guardsman from a plane crash, for which he received a Silver Lifesaving Medal. Concurrently, he played 548 regular-season games for the Yankees, with a lifetime batting average of .279 with 22 home runs. In addition, he appeared in four World Series (1947, 1949, 1950, 1951) for New York, batting .439 in 17 games. He batted left-handed and threw right-handed. He missed 1˝ seasons due to military service during the Korean War. A famous apocryphal story that has made the rounds for years in baseball circles concerns the time when Brown's road roommate was star Yankee catcher Yogi Berra, who had little formal education. The two were reading in their hotel room one night - Berra a comic book and Brown his copy of Boyd's Pathology. Berra came to the end of his comic, tossed it aside, and asked Brown, "So, how is yours turning out?" Brown and Berra are the last two living members of the Yankees team that won the 1947 World Series. There are no living players who played on an earlier Yankees World Series-winning team. Brown practiced cardiology in the Dallas-Fort Worth area until the early 1980s, when he returned to baseball as a vice president of the AL Texas Rangers. In 1984, he succeeded Lee MacPhail as AL president and held the post for a decade; Gene Budig replaced him. In 1992 and 1993, Brown presented the World Series Trophy (on both occasions to the Toronto Blue Jays) instead of the Commissioner of Baseball. The presidencies of the American League and the National League were abolished in 2000 and their functions were absorbed into the office of the Commissioner of Baseball.
