Baseball Player
    (June 26, 1903-November 27, 1987)
    Birth name was Floyd Herman
    Right Fielder for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1926-32), the Cincinnati Reds (1932, 35-37), the Chicago Cubs (1932-34), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1934-35) and the Detroit Tigers (1937-39)
    He was prone to buffoonish errors like coming in from the outfield after only two outs.
    There is a rumor that he was once hit in the head by a fly ball he was trying to catch.
    In 1926, he became the only baseball player to ever triple into a double play.
    In that play he also was forced to share third base with two of his teammates after assuming his hit would clear the bases.
    He smoked cigars.
    He was left handed.
    He got his nickname because his powerful hits reminded people of Babe Ruth.
    His antics made him highly popular with fans.
    His triple into a double play also sent in the run that won the game for the Dodgers.
    He is the first major league player to hit a home run in a night game, in 1935.
    After an average rookie season he became one of the biggest hitters of the time.
    Over two games in 1926, he got nine hits in nine consecutive at-bats.
    He came out of retirement to help the Dodgers during World War II, when many of their best players were in the service.
    He spent 20 years scouting players for the Pirates, Yankees, Phillies, Mets, and Giants.
