Four National League batting titles, one of only 11 players to bat over .300 ten times. 2008 hits for his career, with 348 doubles, 134 home runs and 860 RBIs. A 1975 All-Star Game MVP (shared with John Matlack), three NLCS appearances, and of course, 1979, the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Not a bad career for the man also known as Mad Dog.

Sports and Torts: Hall of Famer Juan Marichal
