Irv Noren

Irving Arnold Noren was an American professional baseball and basketball player. He was an outfielder in the Major Leagues from 1950 through 1960 for the Washington Senators, New York Yankees, Kansas City Athletics, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers, he played for the National Basketball League's Chicago American Gears in 1946–47. In his baseball career, Noren was a minor league manager and the third-base coach of the 1972–73 World Series champion Oakland Athletics; as a player and coach between 1950 and 1975, Noren was a member of five world championship teams. He died at his home in Oceanside, California on November 15, 2019 two weeks before his 95th birthday. Noren was born in Jamestown, New York, but grew up from the age of 12 in Pasadena, where he graduated from high school. Noren attended Pasadena City College and played basketball as well as baseball, his collegiate career was interrupted by service in the United States Army during World War II. The 6 ft, 190 lb Noren batted left-handed.

His pro baseball career began in 1946 when he was signed by the Dodgers while they were still in Brooklyn, but 14 years and the transfer of the team to Los Angeles would pass before he'd wear a Dodger uniform. During his four seasons in Brooklyn's farm system, he was named Most Valuable Player of the 1948 Double-A Texas League. In 1949, playing for an earlier "hometown" franchise, the Hollywood Stars, Noren won the Triple-A Pacific Coast League's MVP Award, hitting.330 with 224 hits, 29 home runs and 130 runs batted in. But the Dodgers had no room for Noren in their outfield in Brooklyn and sold his contract to the American League Washington Senators at the close of the 1949 campaign. Noren responded with a standout 1950 rookie season, he batted.295, established career highs in hits, home runs and RBI, finished 15th in the league's MVP race. His sophomore season, 1951, saw only a slight falloff to a.279 batting average and 86 RBI. But 12 games into his third campaign with the Senators, 1952, Noren was sent on May 3 to the Yankees in a six-player trade that brought Jackie Jensen to Washington.

For the next 4​1⁄2 seasons, Noren would be a valuable platoon outfielder for Casey Stengel's Yankees, appearing in three World Series, all against his original organization, Brooklyn. He started four games as the Yankees' centerfielder in the 1955 World Series, filling in, along with right-handed-swinging Bob Cerv, for an injured Mickey Mantle, but Noren went only 1-for-16. He would hit only.148 in the three Series. His best regular season as a Yankee came in 1954, when he batted a career-high.319 in 125 games played. New York finished second to the Cleveland Indians. All told, Noren hit.272 with 31 homers during his 488-game tenure in the Bronx. Noren's trade to the Kansas City Athletics in February 1957 signaled his transition to journeyman status, as he appeared for four teams in the next four seasons, but he turned in strong performances for the 1957 Cardinals and the 1959 Cubs, batting over.300 each time in part-time duty, before closing his career back in Southern California with the transplanted Dodgers as a pinch hitting specialist in 1960.

Altogether, Noren played in 1,093 games over 11 MLB seasons. He collected 857 hits, including 157 doubles, 35 triples and 65 home runs, with 453 RBI, he batted.275 lifetime. Defensively, he recorded a. 982 fielding percentage at all first base. After his playing days were over, Noren managed the Triple-A Hawaii Islanders in 1962–63, where he would fine players $50 if they showed up too sunburned to play baseball; the Islanders went 158–153 during those two seasons, but did not qualify for the Pacific Coast League playoffs. He scouted for the expansion Senators in 1964, spent 1965–69 out of professional baseball managed in the Pittsburgh Pirates' farm system in 1970. From 1971 through 1973, Noren served on the coaching staff of Oakland A's manager Dick Williams, a fellow Pasadena High School alumnus and former minor league teammate, he was a member of the 1971 American League West Division champions, worked with two consecutive AL pennant-winners and World Series champions in 1972–73. When Williams resigned after the 1973 title, Noren remained on the Oakland staff of new manager Alvin Dark.

But he and Dark clashed and on July 8, 1974, Noren was replaced as third-base coach by Bobby Winkles—denying Noren a third consecutive World Series title when the Athletics went on to defeat the Dodgers in that year's Fall Classic. Noren spent one more season in the big leagues as a coach with the 1975 Cubs. Career statistics and player information from MLB, or Baseball-Reference, or Baseball-Reference, or Retrosheet
