Had only 18 Home Runs but 3 came in one game. Ted Williams hired him as a bull pen coach to help him qualify for a MLB pension

Hello, my name is Elwin, but you can call me Preacher

127-84 with 3.43 ERA lifetime. Best years with the Dodgers. Campanella called the best pitcher he ever worked with

Best hitting and defensive catcher of the 40s ? Cardinals sent him to Giants during military service than had to choose a replacement between Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola, both St Louis boys. Opps
