General Information
Thomas Mullen Umphlett was a center and right fielder in Major League Baseball who played from 1953 to 1955 with the Boston Red Sox and Washington Senators. The son of Daisy Mullen Umphlett and Willie L. Umphlett, he was a three-sport athlete at Ahoskie High School, from which he graduated in 1950. At 6 ft 2 in, 180 pounds, Umphlett - a right-hander - was originally signed by the Red Sox that year, choosing a professional baseball career over football scholarship offers to several universities. In 1950 with the Marion Red Sox, he hit .319 in 94 games. He made his big league debut on April 16, 1953 at the age of 22 and wearing the number 38. He hit .283 in his rookie season, displaying a great eye at the plate-he averaged one strikeout every 16.5 at-bats. He was #2 in Rookie of the Year voting in '53. His career never really amounted to much after his promising rookie season-he'd end up hitting only .246 with six home runs in 360 career games. He averaged one strikeout every 10.8 at bats in his career. Never much of a threat on the basepaths, he stole only seven career bases. He had a .986 career fielding percentage. He played his final major league game on September 24, 1955. 
May 12th, 1930 in Scotland Neck  /  Died:   Sep 21st, 2012
