Bob Allison

Star
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
A sharp-hitting, aggresive outfielder who played the game like a football player. Allison was one of the key players on the Twins when they emerged to capture the 1965 pennant unexpectedly. He played poorly in the World Series, but in Game Two he produced a run-scoring double off Sandy Koufax, and later made a thrilling backhand grab of a line drive down the left field line.
