This Hall of Fame player nicknamed 'Arriba', ended his baseball career involuntarily with 3000 hits. He was killed in a humanitarian mission to Central America. Who was this Pittsburgh Pirate?
I was a 10-season Brooklyn Dodger from 1948-1957 until an automobile accident left me in a wheel chair. Before the accident, I caught for some great pitchers including Don Newcombe, baseball's first Cy Young award recepient in 1956. I was the NL MVP in 1951, 1953, and 1955. My nickname is 'Campy', but who am I really?
15 of 17 seasons I was a Detroit Tiger from 1914-1932. I really didn't like my nickname of "slug", but I still led the league in batting four times, including my .403 in 1923. What was important about that crown is that I prevented Babe Ruth from winning his only Triple Crown. Who am I?
I was a Cincinnati Reds' pitcher for six of my seven short seasons from 1988-1995. I was at the top of my game with 31 saves in 1991, but with all closers, you live or you die with your arm. I earned the nickname 'Nasty Boy' because of some on and off field incidents. Who am I?
There have been a few baseballers nicknamed 'Happy Jack', but I was the first pitcher in the Major Leagues to win 40 games in a season. I did this in 1904 with the New York Highlanders. That was also my career high of going 41-12. Who am I?
Jay Hanna Dean
I pitched for 23 seasons in the Major Leagues. I was a starter throughout my entire career, mostly with the Dodgers which began in 1966. It was tough to win over 300 games in my career because I hit the 20-mark in only one season. My nickname was 'Black and Decker'. Who am I?
I present to you Charlie Gehringer, a loyal 19-season Detroit Tiger. He led the league in hits, doubles, runs, batting average, triples, and even stolen bases. Charlie won the American League MVP in 1937. What was his nickname?
The Mechanical Man
My name wasn't Mike, but I was nicknamed 'Black Mike' for some reason. I played my catching career with the Philadelphia Athletics and Detroit Tigers from 1925-1937. In that time, I won the AL MVP in 1928 and 1934.
This player nicknamed '3-dog', played centerfielder for 15 of his 18 seasons with the Dodgers, and was an integral part of the Dodger outfield in the 1960s. Wearing the number three on his back, he led the league in triples in 1962 and 1970. Who is he?
I played in only one inning in my entire playing career. I had one at-bat but stuck out, one put-out in the field, but also committed an error. This all happened in 1936 as a St. Louis Cardinal. I did however come back as a manager almost 20 years later. Again I was a one-team person. This time it was the Dodgers, who I took to seven World Series. My name is Walter Alston, and my nickname was what?
