Baseball Player
    (January 6, 1926-November 23, 2016)
    Brooklyn Dodger, Detroit Tiger and New York Yankee pitcher
    Won 21 games in one season (1947)
    Lifetime record of 88-68 with a 3.71 ERA
    Gave up the most famous home run in history
    Father-in-law of former New York Met manager, Bobby Valentine
    Leading 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth, he gave up a three run homer to Bobby Thompson, giving the New York Giants the game and the pennant (known as the 'home run heard around the world' - October 3, 1951).
    He has no superstitions.
    He wore #13 on his jersey and posed with black cats.
    When interviewed after giving up the home run, he said 'Why me? Why me? Why is it always me?' (Sounds like Nancy Kerrigan)
    He eventually said that because of his religious beliefs, God knew he could handle it.
