WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
Looked like Howdy Doody, claimed to have seen a UFO, hit more than 125 homers for three teams.

“There were plenty of occasions when we stayed in the clubhouse until 2 or 3 in the morning talking about the game. He’s the type of guy who initiated that. There should be more guys like him in the game. I’m not going to forget about him. Hopefully, someday I can be like him.”
