Players in major league history

  • Vic Power (1927 - 2005)

    Also from Puerto Rico, Vic Power struggled to make it into the major leagues despite his obvious talents. Finally picked by the Philadelphia Athletics in 1954, Power revolutionized the first base role by catching the balls with one gloved hand. Here, playing for the Kansas City Royals, he tags Ted Williams in 1957. Power went on to win seven Golden Glove awards during his career. — Photo by: AP
