Baseball Player
    He was overshadowed by teammates Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews.
    He was injury-prone with Sports Illustrated declaring, 'Joe's major problem in baseball is not to break Babe Ruth's home run record but to merely finish a season.'
    He managed the Indians for one season (1967), leading the team to its worst record in 21 years.
    He was an all-state basketball player in high school and attended LSU on a basketball scholarship.
    He was an incredible power hitter, and was the only hitter to clear the left-field roof at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field and one of only three players (along with Hank Aaron and Lou Brock) to hit a home run to center field at the Polo Grounds.
    He was one of a handful of players to hit four home runs in a single game (July 31, 1954).
    After retiring, he operated a horse ranch in his hometown and was named Louisiana's top breeder nine times.
