Wertz is best known for his performance in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. He was playing for the Cleveland Indians and hit a long drive to deep center field with the bases loaded in a tie game against the New York Giants. Many believe that the ball would have been a home run in any other ballpark, but it hit against the wall in deep center field, and only one run scored. The Giants went on to win the game in extra innings, and many historians believe that this was the turning point of the series. Despite this disappointment, Wertz continued to be a productive player for many years and finished his career with a .277 batting average, 266 home runs, and 1,178 RBIs.

After retiring from baseball, Wertz worked as a salesman for Ford Motor Company in Michigan. He remained active in baseball, however, and often worked as a scout and a coach. Wertz passed away in 1983 at the age of 58, but his contributions to the game of baseball endure. He will always be remembered as one of the great hitters of his era and as a player who came agonizingly close to winning a World Series. Read even more about Vic Wertz at Wikipedia
