He had a military stint and a long minor league stretch before making the Yankees for good in 1958. He won a Gold Glove that season. He went to Kansas City in the trade that brought Roger Maris to New York and later preceeded Boog Powell as the Orioles' first baseman. 

He won two World Series with theYankeess and played in a third while with the '67 Impossible Dream Red Sox.  In his bast season, 1962, Siebern hit 25/117/.305/.412 and garnered enough MVP votes to finish 7th on the list.
