  • Albert Wesley Lakeman (December 31, 1918 – May 25, 1976) was a catcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Cincinnati Reds (1942–47), Philadelphia Phillies (1947–48), Boston Braves (1949) and Detroit Tigers (1954). Lakeman batted and threw right-handed, and was listed as 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall and 195 pounds (88 kg). Nicknamed "Moose", he was a native of Cincinnati. The light-hitting Lakeman was a fine defensive catcher as he took responsibility for getting the most out of his pitchers. For most of his nine-career in the Majors, he was an efficient, reliable backup playing behind Ray Mueller (Reds} and Andy Seminick (Phillies). His most productive season came in 1945 with Cincinnati, when he posted career-highs in games played (76, including 72 games as starting backstop as the Reds' most-used catcher), batting average (.256), home runs (eight), RBI (31) and runs (22). In a nine-season career, Lakeman was a .203 hitter with 15 home runs and 66 RBI in 239 games. After his playing career ended, he managed in the Tigers' farm system (1956–62; 1965–66; 1970) and served two terms as the bullpen coach at the Major League level for the Boston Red Sox (1963–64; 1967–69). He was on the coaching staff of Boston's 1967 American League champions. Lakeman died in Spartanburg, South Carolina, at age 57. (en)
