Baseball Player
    (November 7, 1932-December 15, 2002)
    Played with the Pittsburgh Pirates (1958-62), Boston Red Sox (1963-64), Philadelphia Phillies (1965), New York Mets (1966), Los Angeles Dodgers (1966) and California Angels (1969)
    Hit .264 for his career with 228 home runs and 743 RBIs
    Named to the All-Star team (1961)
    Nicknamed 'Dr. Strangeglove' and 'Stonefingers'
    After hitting 66 home runs in the minor leagues (1956), he added '66' to his signature.
    He said, 'They called me an irrepressible egotist. That hasn't changed any.'
    He started as an outfielder but was converted to first base after Pittsburgh manager Bobby Bragan called him 'the worst outfielder I ever saw in my life.'
    He led the majors in most errors by a first baseman for seven consecutive seasons (1958-64).
    He refused to attend a reunion of the 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates World Championship team because the Pirates were 'cheap' and would not buy him a first-class round-trip plane ticket for the event (1985).
    His first major league hit was a home run; his second was a grand slam.
    He was the first player to hit 30 home runs and drive in 100 runs in both leagues.
    He led American League first basemen in putouts and assists (1963).
    Pirates teammate Dick Groat said, 'He could make fun of anybody, including himself.'
    He had vanity plates that read 'E-3.'
    He said, 'One night in Pittsburgh, 30,000 fans gave me a standing ovation when I caught a hot dog wrapper on the fly.'
