At age 14, Rod Carew emigrated from Panama to play baseball in America. He played second base for the Minnesota Twins and the California Angels from 1967-1985, appearing on both the covers ofTime and Sports Illustrated in July 1977 when he was declared “Baseball’s Best Hitter” as he pursued Ted Williams’s .400 batting average. He came tantalizingly close to achieving his goal, but in the process earned his place in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
