Roy Sievers, a St. Louisan who played for the hometown Browns and three other Major League Baseball franchises, died late Monday at his home in Spanish Lake. He was 90.

A product of Beaumont High, Sievers played in the major leagues for 17 seasons. A righthander who played first base and left field, Sievers had a career batting average of .267, hit 318 home runs and drove in 1,147 runs. He was the American League rookie of the year for the Browns in 1949.

Sievers also played for the Chicago White Sox, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Senators. It was after his second stint with the Senators that he retired in 1965.

Sieversí best season was 1957, when he finished third in most valuable player balloting behind Mickey Mantle and Ted Williams. That year he batted .301 and led MLB in home runs (42), RBIs (114), extra-base hits (70) and total bases (331). He was a five-time All-Star.

Sievers is survived by a son, Rob, and a daughter, Shawn. He was preceded in death by his wife, Joan, and a son, Davi
