Allen broke the Phillies in 1964 and was voted Rookie of the Year. He put up some great number and seemed like a candidate for the Hall of Fame. At the same time, he never had a good relationship with the fans or media.
In 1972, he was traded to Chicago and had a superb season.
Allen battled injuries and personal problems after signing the contract. He retired with a .291 batting average, 351 HR and 1,191 RBI.
