1948 Bowman #11: Johnny Lindell, New York Yankees, OF/P

Johnny Lindell began his major league career with the Yankees in 1941 (after spending five years in the minors), and played until 1954.  He played for a total of four teams during 12 seasons.  Lindell came up as a pitcher, but spent the majority of his career in the outfield before going back to pitching towards the end of his career.  He made the All-Star team in 1943, which was the same year that Lindell earned his first World Series ring against the Cardinals.  Lindell also earned rings in 1947 and 1948--both times against the Dodgers.  He's led the league in Triples and Total Bases during his career.
