Baseball Player
    (November 10, 1933-October 12, 1986)
    Played for the Chicago White Sox (1958-59) and Detroit Tigers (1960-74)
    Hit 377 career home runs
    A four time All-Star (1961,66,71-72)
    Drowned in a boating accident
    The year that he led the AL in hits and batting average (1961), he was overshadowed by Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris home run record chase.
    He said, 'I owe my success to expansion pitching, a short right field fence and my hollow bats.'
    He posed for a photo layout in Sports Illustrated demonstrating how to cork a bat.
    After 1961, his batting average never rose above .290.
    His .361 batting average in 1961 was the highest of any major league player in the 1960s.
    He led the AL in fielding percentage twice (1964, 67) and assists three times (1965-67)
    Teammate Gates Brown said, 'He played hard on the field and off, and win, lose or draw, he was going to have fun after a game.'
    As a joke, during a Nolan Ryan no-hitter, he brought a table leg to the plate instead of a bat. When the umpire told him to get a regulation bat, Cash replied, 'I won't hit him anyway (July 15, 1973).'
