Baseball Player
    (February 25, 1951- )
    Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
    Center fielder for the Houston Astros (1970-81), Cincinnati Reds (1982-85), St. Louis Cardinals (1985) and Los Angeles Dodgers (1986)
    Career totals of 199 home runs, 976 RBIs, 550 stolen bases
    Five-time Golden Glove winner (1972-76)
    Four-time All-Star (1972-74,1976)
    He fatally shot his 19-year-old girlfriend, Altagracia de la Cruz (December 11, 1973), and was charged with second degree murder.
    He was fined $5,000 for climbing into the stands to attack a heckler (1981).
    He crashed his Mercedes into a tree during an argument with another girlfriend, refused to take a Breathalyzer test, and after being arrested tried to kick out the window of the police car (1985).
    He was charged with assault and resisting arrest after smashing his glass into the face of a man who had bumped him at a nightclub (1987).
    He was charged with assault and resisting arrest again after beating yet another girlfriend, hitting her head against a wall (1988).
    He followed Lou Brock as the second player to hit 20 home runs and steal 50 bases in a season, accomplishing the feat three years in a row (1972-74).
    During his rookie season, Leo Durocher said that he was 'better than Willie Mays at the same age.'
    Charges in the fatal shooting were reduced to involuntary manslaughter after forensic tests supported his story that Cruz had pulled the trigger when she tried to take the gun after he refused to let her handle it.
    He testified that he had refused to give Cruz the gun because 'it was loaded and very dangerous,' which proved to be an accurate assessment.
