His major league career would span a record 1,918 games – an unmatched mark for backstops for more than 40 years. From 1951 to 1959, as manager of the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox teams, Lopez won two pennants and finished second to the New York Yankees the other seven years. His 1954 Cleveland squad won 111 games, an American League record that lasted 44 years. In 1959, he led the “Go-Go” White Sox to their first pennant since 1919.
