Career highlights and awards

Norman Leroy Siebern (born July 26, 1933 in St. Louis, Missouri) was a Major League Baseball player for the New York Yankees, Kansas City Athletics, Baltimore Orioles, California Angels, San Francisco Giants, and Boston Red Sox from 1956 to 1968. His best season came in 1962 with the A's, when he hit 25 home runs, had 117 Runs Batted In and a .308 batting average. He might be most remembered however, as being one of the players the Yankees traded for Roger Maris.

The Orioles acquired Siebern on November 27, 1963 in an exchange of starting first basemen, sending Jim Gentile and $25,000 to the Athletics. He spent two disappointing seasons in Baltimore, losing his starting spot in the middle of 1965 to Boog Powell who successfully made the smooth transition from the outfield. The 32-year-old Siebern was traded to the Angels on December 2, 1965 for 22-year-old outfielder Dick Simpson. Seven days later, Simpson would be one of three players sent to the Cincinnati Reds for Frank Robinson.[1]
