Bobby Wanzer
One of the first NBA players to shoot over 90 percent from the free-throw line, Bobby Wanzer was one of professional basketball's best outside scoring threats. Although the extremely proficient Wanzer shot 90.4 percent in the 1951-52 season, it was his multidimensional game that earned him notoriety. A complete player, he could pass, shoot, dribble, defend, and play hard. An All-NBA Second-Team selection twice who appeared in five All-Star Games, Wanzer spent his entire ten-year pro career with the Rochester Royals coached by Hall of Famer Les Harrison. Wanzer and fellow Hall of Famer Bob Davies were a stunning backcourt team often mentioned alongside the Bob Cousy-Bill Sharman tandem. The Wanzer-Davies duo helped bring Rochester an NBA championship in 1951.

Orlando Cepeda
Orlando "Peruchin - The Baby Bull" Cepeda, son of legendary Puerto Rican baseball star Pedro Perucho "The Bull" Cepeda, was only 20-years-old when he arrived to the Major Leagues in 1958. In his first Major League game, this Latino powerhouse homered to help beat Don Drysdale and the Dodgers. It was a picture perfect beginning to a spectacular career that includes nine .300 seasons and eight seasons of 25 or more homers. As a rookie in 1958, Cepeda belted 25 homers, led the National League with 38 doubles, knocked in 96 runs and batted .312. Those numbers won Cepeda Rookie of the Year honors for the San Francisco Giants and his manager for the first two years, Bill Rigney called him "The best young right-handed power hitter I've ever seen." Despite being a fan favorite in San Francisco which made him as popular as Willie Mays, Cepeda's conflicts with management bounced him to the St. Louis Cardinals in mid-1966. First baseman Orlando Cepeda was now "Cha-Cha" in St. Louis because of his constant love & desire to bring a stereo to the club house to share his beloved salsa music. Respecting Cepeda's taste turned him into the 1967 MVP by hitting .325 and driving in 111 RBIs. After leading the Cardinals to a pennant in 1967, they went on to become world champions by beating the Boston RedSox in a 7-game series. Cepeda appeared in three world series, was a seven-time All-Star (1959-64, 67) and was the National League MVP in 1967 with the St. Louis Cardinals. Cepeda was also known to get that clutch hit or home run to knock in winning runs late in the game. He homered against 187 different pitchers, with Milwaukee Braves teammates Warren Spahn and Lew Burdette his favorite targets (10 homers apiece). No wonder Burdette called Cepeda "the toughest hitter I ever faced." After his retirement in 1975, Cepeda was recognized nationally for his humanitarian efforts as an ambassador for baseball. The Ponce, Puerto Rican native served as honorary spokesman for the Crohn's and Colitis foundation of America, and participates in "Athletes against Aids." Cepeda has helped raise more than $10,000 for baseball equipment for the Roberto Clemente Latin American Athletic Club's Baseball League in the mission district. But those good deeds were over-shadowed when Cepeda was arrested at an airport on charges of trying to pick up 160 pounds of marijuana. He was sentenced to 5 years but only did 10 months at a state prison. This obviously worked against him when bids for the Hall of Fame came up. In 1993, Cepeda was inducted into the Puerto Rico Sports Hall of Fame, but just missed being voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by a mere seven votes. The fifth narrowest margin a player ever missed being inducted in baseball history. Of the 18 retired players who have hit more than 300 homers and batted over .295 for their career, only Cepeda wasn't in the Baseball Hall of Fame until March of 1999, when Cepeda along with Nolan Ryan, Robin Yount and George Brett were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Orlando Cepeda joins the late Roberto Clemente as the only Puerto Ricans in the Hall of Fame.
