Russell Earl O'Dey was born in Florida in 1951.   He ended up as Bucky Dent.

In 1973, Dent broke with the Chicago White Sox.   He hit .260 over 4 seasons as Chicago's shortstop.

From 1977 to '82, he was with the Yankees and that's where he hit one of the most famous HR's in baseball history.    It happened in the 1-game 1978 playoff to determine the AL West champion.

Overall, he played 12 seasons and hit .247.    However, it was that swing at Fenway Park that made him a big hero for the Yankees and forever hated in Boston.

Bucky Dent was a part of the 1978 New York Yankees, one of the most amazing championship teams ever.
