    He was accused of selling out to American culture in his homeland as a result.
    He was turned down an opportunity to play for the New York Yankees due to the team's owner feeling his personality didn't measure up with the team's conservative values.
    He played for five different teams in the major leagues.
    He was considered one of the first showboaters by baseball pundits.
    He was viewed as being one of the first Puerto Rican major league stars, prior to Roberto Clemente.
    He was one of the first Puerto Rican players to play in the American League.
    He won seven consecutive Gold Gloves during his career.
    He had a great sense of humour and a quick wit, which made him popular with fans and teammates alike.
    He clarified his reason for adopting the 'Vic Power' psuedonym was due to his experience playing in Quebec, where his last name sounded similar to the French word 'plotte,' which translated into 'vagina' in English.
