First Baseman 1947-57

— Red Legends of Crosley Field, Tom Tsuchiya Sculptor —

Ted Kluszewski was an imposing physical specimen, a quintessential power hitter and the inspiration for Cincinnati's sleeveless uniforms. With room for his bulging biceps to move, "Big Klu" muscled his way through the 1950s, averaging 43 home runs and 116 RBIs each season from 1953-56. In addition to his renowned power, Kluszewski also hit with marked consistency, topping .300 seven times in his career while rarely striking out. The fan favorite earned four trips to the All-Star Game and joined the Reds Hall of Fame in 1962. His #18 was retired by the Reds in 1998.
