The Resume

    (October 9, 1940-March 13, 2023)
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    First Baseman for NY Yankees (1962-69), Houston Astros (1970), Chicago Cubs (1970-73) and Atlanta Braves (1973)

Why he might be annoying:

    Famed for being the first male athlete to pack a hair dryer and hair spray in his traveling luggage.
    He took a lot of ribbing about always trying to keep his hair in place and may have inspired John Travolta's character in 'Saturday Night Fever.'
    He tried to capitalize on sports fame with a restaurant in Chicago called 'Joe Pepitone's The Thing.'
    He hated playing for the Houston Astros.
    Only one season he hit over .280.
    He hawked Yankee stuff on QVC.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He held the N.Y. Yankee first baseman record for best fielding average.
    Although he admitted he would rather play today because of the incredible salaries, he does say that today's players are missing out on the comradery and family like atmosphere of the teams he played on.
