Roy Campanella: The Hall of Fame Catcher

Roy Campanella was a professional baseball player who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1948 to 1957. He was known for his exceptional skills as a catcher and his contributions to the integration of Major League Baseball. Here are some fun facts about this legendary player:

  • Campanella was born in 1921 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He began playing baseball at a young age and was scouted by the Brooklyn Dodgers while playing in the Negro Leagues.
  • In 1948, Campanella made his major league debut with the Dodgers and quickly established himself as one of the best catchers in the game. He won three Most Valuable Player awards during his career (1951, 1953, and 1955) and was selected to eight All-Star teams.
  • In addition to his impressive statistics on the field, Campanella is also remembered for his contributions to civil rights. He played an important role in breaking down racial barriers in baseball and was a mentor to many younger players who followed in his footsteps.
  • Unfortunately, Campanella’s career was cut short when he was paralyzed in a car accident in 1958. Despite this setback, he remained active in baseball as a coach and mentor until his death in 1993.
  • In recognition of his contributions to the sport of baseball, Campanella was posthumously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.

Coasters are an ideal home décor accent, crafted with attention to detail and quality. Each coaster boasts an authentic card hand-mounted onto the high-quality ceramic tile measuring 4.25 x4.25 inches in size and 0.25 inches thick. The card may not always be the one pictured, as it depends on the current inventory.  However each card is carefully curated by Jake and Dean and the beauty and character is sure to impress! The tiles are then sealed with a bio-based resin for unbeatable protection, while the natural cork backing gives it that finished touch and makes it easy to showcase anywhere.
