WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
Major League ballplayers don’t come from South Dakota, but that’s where Ellis was born. No position player born in that state has ever made the All-Star team, but Ellis was the most deserving. He was a Gold Glove caliber second baseman with a strong arm and had 12-15 homer power.
