A powerful first baseman and consistent run producer for 17 Major League seasons, notwithstanding chronic knee problems. His ability to drive the ball with authority was respected and feared by the opposition. Unanimous selection for both the 1958 N.L Rookie of the Year award and 1967 MVP honors. The 11-time All-Star led the N.L. in home runs (46) and RBIs (142) in 1961 batted .300 nine times and slugged 379 home runs. His stalwart leadership propelled his club to three world series.
