A powerful slugger during his 17-year Major League career, Orlando Manuel Cepeda Pennes withstood a series of knee injuries to become a seven-time National League All-Star. As a 20-year-old rookie with the Giants in 1958, the Baby Bull hit .312 with 25 home runs to earn unanimous National League Rookie of the Year honors. Nine years later, the Puerto Rican native compiled a league-leading 111 RBIs for the world champion Cardinals while becoming the first unanimous MVP in the National League since Carl Hubbell in 1936.
