A major star in the Negro Leagues, Monte Irvin continued his red-hot batting upon joining Lou Durrocher and the New York Giants in 1949, and helped the Giants capture two NL pennants, 1951 and 1954. Monte Irvin batted a torrid .458 in the 1951 World Series vs the Yankees. He lined 11 hits in 24 at bats, including going 4-for-5 plus a steal of home in Game 1.
