BIO: Richard Allan Sisler was born in 1920 in St. Louis, MO and died in 1998 in Nashville, TN. He played major league baseball from 1946 to 1953 as 1st baseman and outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds, appeared in the 1946 and 1950 World Series, and was selected in 1950 as an All-Star. Dick Sisler, the son of George Sisler, had a respectable baseball career in his own right. He and his father are one of only two pairs of fathers and sons who both were big league managers. Sisler was a Reds coach from 1961 to 1964. He managed the Cincinnati Reds for part of 1964 when he took over for an ailing Fred Hutchinson and for all of 1965. His brother Dave Sisler also played in the major leagues for seven years as a pitcher, and his other brother, George Sisler Jr., was involved in minor league baseball for decades.
