Theodore Savage, Jr. (born as Ephesian Savage on February 21, 1936), is an American former professional baseball outfielder, who played Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1962 to 1971, for eight big league teams. He is one of just two players (Cesar Izturis) to play for all five National League Central teams.


Savage was a three-sport star and graduated from East St. Louis Lincoln High School in East St. Louis, Illinois. He attended Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri before serving for three years in the U.S. Army.

Major league career

Savage was signed as an amateur free agent in 1960 by the Philadelphia Phillies.

He made his major league debut on April 9, 1962, for the Phillies in a 12-4 road win over the Cincinnati Reds at Crosley Field. Pinch-hitting for Wes Covington against Bob Miller, he grounded out but stayed in the game, playing left field. After grounding out again, in the seventh inning he notched his first major league hit and RBI with a single off pitcher Dave Hillman that drove in Tony Gonzalez. He later had another RBI single that scored Gonzalez again, off pitcher Jim Brosnan.[1]

With the 1970 Milwaukee Brewers, Savage hit for a .279 batting average with 12 home runs, 50 runs batted in and a .402 slugging percentage in 343 plate appearances.[2]

His final game was on July 3, 1971, for the Kansas City Royals in a 1–0 home loss to the Chicago White Sox, in which he got his final career hit, a single off Tommy John.[3] He ended his playing career with 642 games played with a .233 average with 34 home runs and 163 runs batted in.[2]

Personal life

After his baseball career ended, he earned a Ph.D. in urban studies from Saint Louis University and spent nine years as athletic director at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis. In 1987 Savage was hired by the St. Louis Cardinals as assistant director of community relations and a minor-league instructor.

In 2006 Dr. Ted Savage was inducted into the Lincoln University Alumni Hall of Fame.[4]

After a 25-year career with the Cardinals, Savage retired in 2012 as director of target marketing in the Cardinals Care and community relations department.[5] In 2013 the Cardinals Care 24th annual golf tournament hosted by Savage was renamed the Ted Savage RBI Golf Classic to raise funds for the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program.[6]
