Baseball Player
    What kind of a grown man likes to be addressed as Robby?
    He was overshadowed by Ryne Sandberg for the majority of his prime years.
    He set a new major league record after he was caught stealing four times in a single game.
    He missed out on playing in the All-Star Game both times he was selected due to knee injuries.
    He admitted he was afraid to bat in the final two seasons of his career, after he took two beanings to the head.
    His clutch hitting and clutch defensive plays made him a fan favorite in San Francisco.
    He was considered the heart and soul of the Giants, and would often sacrifice his body to make a game saving play.
    He helped the Giants set a new playoff record by recording 10 double plays, and he did it while playing with a bulging disc in his back (1987).
    He used the same baseball glove for the duration of his career, which was described as being held together by 'pine tar and chew spit' near the end.
    He unselfishly returned to the lineup sporting a bloodshot eye and wearing a plastic mask with the hopes of helping the Giants win the NL West on the last day of the season (they didn't) (1993).
