You forgot to add: Ruined Ray Fosse's career by running over him during an all star game.
the hardest playing guy I ever watched. He actually did hustle on everything, even walks. His play was the best to watch. I loved him as a player.

Watching him play in front of Frank Robinson was awesome. I think he ran hard because Frank would have killed him if he didn't.

Dammit, Selig put him in the Hall of Fame

It's not like he cheated while he was playing
overrated
Interesting piece on espn.com about who allowed that hit.

I can't find footage of that. Just pics

I loved how he went balls out on everything.

Took it to the limit.
