COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) - Andy Carey, third baseman for the New York Yankees dynasty of the 1950s that won four straight American League pennants and two World Series, has died at 80.

Daughter Elizabeth Carey tells the New York Times (http://nyti.ms/zPIC61) he died Dec. 15 in California of Lewy body dementia.

Joining the Yankees in 1952, Carey became a regular at third two years later on a team that included Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra and Elston Howard.

In 1955, he led the AL in triples with 11, and the Yankees won the first of four consecutive pennants. World Series wins came in 1956 and 1958.

He played with Kansas City, the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers before retiring in 1962 with a .260 batting average, 64 home runs and 350 RBIs.
