A left-handed batter, Kubek signed his first professional contract with the New York Yankees and rose rapidly through the Yanks' farm system. He was 20 years of age when he played his first game in Major League Baseball in 1957, and - except for one year (1962) spent largely in the U.S. military - remained with the Yankees until his retirement due to a back injury at the close of the 1965 season.

Kubek played 1,092 games, 882 of them at shortstop (although he also was an outfielder and utility infielder in his early career), compiling a lifetime batting average of .266 with 57 home runs. During his nine years with the Yankees, he played on seven American League pennant winners (1957-58, 1960-64) and three world champions (1958, 1961-1962). In 1957, Kubek won the American League Rookie of the Year Award. In Game 3 of the 1957 World Series, he had one of the best World Series games a rookie has ever had. In his prime he was a dangerous hitter and formed a top double play combination with second baseman (and roommate) Bobby Richardson on an infield that also featured third baseman Clete Boyer. In Game 7 of the 1960 World Series, Kubek was victimized by a bad-hop ground ball that struck him in the throat; Kubek was badly injured and the batter, Bill Virdon, reached first base, enabling the Pittsburgh Pirates to rally in a game they eventually won 10-9 on a ninth-inning homer by Bill Mazeroski. Kubek was curiously sensitive about the Bill Virdon incident. When future broadcasting partner Bob Costas once referenced Virdon's smash on the air, Kubek put his hand on Costas' thigh to stop him.

Kubek initially had trouble adjusting to the world of broadcasting. Although he had a lot to say, he was gangling, he tended to stutter, and talked too fast. Curt Gowdy soon suggested to Kubek that he should work offseason to improve his delivery. Buying a recorder, Kubek often read poetry aloud for 20 minutes a day. Kubek eventually became a respected broadcaster, doing both play-by-play and commentary. Stuttering (known as stammering in the United Kingdom, sometimes misspelled studdering ) is a speech disorder in which the flow of speech is disrupted by involuntary repetitions and prolongations of sounds, syllables, words or phrases; and involuntary silent pauses or blocks in which the stutterer is unable to produce sounds. ...


As both a local and national sportscaster, Kubek was known for his outspokenness. While calling the 1972 American League Championship Series, Kubek said that Oakland's Bert Campaneris throwing his bat at Detroit's Lerrin LaGrow (who knocked Campaneris down) was justified. Kubek believed that any pitch aimed squarely at the batter's legs can endanger his career. Incensed, Detroit's Chrysler Corporation phoned Commissioner Bowie Kuhn, who then called NBC, which in return, pressured Kubek.

In the 10th inning of Game 3 of the 1975 World Series, Cincinnati's César Gerónimo reached first base. Then, Boston catcher Carlton Fisk flung Ed Armbrister's bunt into center field. Kubek on the NBC telecast, immediately charged that Armbrister interfered [with the attempted forceout] despite the fact that home plate umpire Larry Barnett didn't agree. After Joe Morgan drove in the game winning run for the Reds (by a score of 6-5), Barnett blamed Kubek for death alarum. Later, Kubek got 1,000 letters dubbing him a Boston stooge.

The team of Kubek and Bob Costas (backing up Vin Scully and Joe Garagiola) proved to be a formidable pair. There were even some who preferred the team of Kubek and Costas over the musings of Vin Scully and the asides of Joe Garagiola. Kubek at first, wasn't happy about once again being assigned the backup game but considered it to be no big ego deal. One of Tony Kubek and Bob Costas' most memorable broadcasts came on June 23, 1984. The duo were at Chicago's Wrigley Field to call an unbelievable 12-11 contest between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals. Led by superstar second baseman (and future Hall of Famer) Ryne Sandberg, the Cubs rallied from a 9-3 deficit before winning it in extra innings.

Kubek and Costas, who worked together since 1983, called the final edition (the 981st over all) of NBC's Game of the Week which aired on September 30, 1989. Coincidentally, that particular game featured the Toronto Blue Jays (a team that Kubek was long associated with as a broadcaster) beating Baltimore Orioles 4-3 to clinch the AL East title from the SkyDome. When the subject came of NBC losing the rights to televising Major League Baseball for the first time since 1946, Kubek simply said "I can't believe it!"

When NBC lost its baseball TV rights to CBS after the 1989 season, Kubek disappeared from the national scene, joining the Yankees' local cable-TV announcing team (a gig that earned Kubek $525,000 a year).

Kubek spent five years calling games for the Yankees (1990-1994) on the Madison Square Garden Network, where he earned fans and critics' respect for his honesty.

"I hate what the game's become - the greed, the nastiness. You can't be married to baseball, give your heart to it, but when it starts taking over your soul, it's time to say whoa." Kubek added "I want to go home and spend more time with my family. They deserve it more than anyone. I don't need that ego stuff. I feel sorry for those who do."


Kubek's resignation coincided with the bitter strike that wound up cancelling the World Series in 1994.

American Dreams and Dynasties:  American League 1964 (2813 words)
The Yankees had slumped to fifth, 4.5 games out, and there were rumblings in the Bronx that Berra might be good for morale, but he was not good for discipline.
The Bombers’ bench was proving thin, key players like Mantle, Maris and Kubek were missing time, and the pitching was struggling as Ralph Terry was ineffective, leaving the rotation with young Jim Bouton, aging Whitey Ford, and wild hard-thrower Al Downing.
The Yankees were stumbling as Tony Kubek was suffering with back trouble, and Clete Boyer was not hitting.
Sandy Koufax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5429 words)
Clete Boyer was the only Yankee regular not to strike out against Koufax.
Mickey Mantle, Tom Tresh and Tony Kubek struck out twice each, and Bobby Richardson struck out three times (after striking out only 22 times on the season, in 630 at-bats).
Koufax also struck out three pinch-hitters, including Harry Bright to end the game.
