“Both Richards and Lopez were ‘defense first’ managers. Lopez once said that all a team really needed was pitching and defense, because if you didn’t allow the other team to score, eventually they would give you a run, and you’d win the game. Richards was less extreme in this regard.”
1951 Bowman #153
Al's teams captured 2 pennants, another area where Richards proved "less extreme" by winning none. He leads, however, in the all-important Bowman caricatures category. 1951's a favorite set of mine and Paul's card stands out. What says "field manager" like a parade balloon-sized cranium and 5-story neck?
