#225 Johnny Logan

Johnny Logan was a seriously good shortstop for the Braves for nine seasons beginning in 1952. He had a well deserved reputation as a great fielder but could also hit some as evidenced by his several seasons as a .280/.290 hitter and string of double digit homer seasons.

Logan played in four All Star games and both of Milwaukee's World Series' against the Yankees. Logan homered off Bobby Shantz in Game 2 of the '57 Series.

I like the way this card shows off the classic Milwaukee Braves' cap. I'm not sure why I like this one but along with the White Sox cap of this era it's among my favorites.I'd love to get me one of those but I've got too many baseball caps already (or so I've been informed).
