I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country.
I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed.
Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out there and liked to show off my arm for sure. I was mostly a contact hitter but could hit the ball everywhere cause I had outstanding bat control, and I consistently batted .300 or better. Late in my baseball career, I put four years together on one team where I batted .318 during that time and won a MVP award. The year before I won that award, I batted .362 and led all third basemen with a .981 fielding average. Funny thing was, I was 36 years old at that time... which means I was 37 years old when I got my MVP the next year.
I'm not one to brag, but one important gentleman that had been a player, then manager and owner said this about me. "There simply never was a smoother functioning master at third base than *********, and he can hit that apple, too."
So. Who am I?
