He helped the Phillies to win the NL Eastern Division in 1977 and 1978.

Sizemore grounded into a league-leading 25 double plays in 1977 which tied the Phillies single season record set by Del Ennis in 1950.

In his first American League game as a member of the Red Sox he went 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs.

In 12 seasons he played in 1,411 games, had 5,011 at bats, 577 runs, 1,311 hits, 188 doubles, 21 triples, 23 home runs, 430 RBI, 59 stolen bases, 469 walks, a .262 batting average, a .325 on-base percentage, a .321 slugging percentage, 1,610 total bases, 110 sacrifice hits, 38 sacrifice flies and 60 intentional walks.

After Sizemore's retirement as a player, he went to work for baseball glove manufacturer Rawlings, as their chief liaison with major league players.[1]
