Wally Post (July 9, 1929 - January 6, 1982) was a right fielder in Major League Baseball. From 1949 through 1964, Post played for the Cincinnati Reds & Redlegs (1949, 1951-57, 1960-63), Philadelphia Phillies (1958-60), Minnesota Twins (1963) and Cleveland Indians (1964). He batted and threw right handed. In a 15-season career, Post was a .266 hitter with 210 home runs and 699 RBI in 1204 games.
A native of St. Wendelin, Ohio, Post spent most of his career with Cincinnati teams. A powerful slugger in the mid-1950s, he also was respected for his strong and accurate throwing arm.
Post broke into professional baseball as a minor league pitcher in 1946 and was converted to an outfielder in 1949, the year of his majors debut. Post shuttled between the minor and major leagues for the next two years before finally staying with Cincinnati in 1954. His most productive season came in 1955, when he hit .309 with 40 home runs with 109 RBI, all career highs.
After playing for the Phillies, Twins, Indians, and in a second stint with the Reds, Post retired in 1963. He was inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 1965.
Wally Post died in St. Henry, Ohio, at age of 52.
