  • Norman Howard John Larker was a first baseman/outfielder who played in Major League Baseball from 1958 through 1963. Listed at 6 ft 0 in, 185 lbs., Larker batted and threw left-handed. He was born in Beaver Meadows, Pennsylvania. Larker played in the minor leagues even before 1950. He reached the majors in 1958 with the Dodgers –the first season that they played in Los Angeles–, spending four years with them before moving to the Houston Colt .45's, Milwaukee Braves, and San Francisco Giants. As a 27-year-old rookie, Larker hit .277 with a .427 slugging percentage in 99 games, mostly as an outfielder. He later became the regular first baseman for the Dodgers in replacement of Gil Hodges. His most productive season came in 1960, when he finished second in the National League batting race with a .323 average and was selected to the All-Star Game. As a member of the original Colt .45's in 1962, he collected career-highs in home runs, triples and runs, while leading the team in doubles and on-base percentage; tied for the team-lead in walks, and hit .263 on a team that posted a collective .246. average.
