Rocco Domenico Colavito was born in New York on this in 1933. He broke with the Indians in 1955 and was hitting a lot of HR's in a few seasons.
As a kid, I remember having a 1965 Rocky Colavito card. It was awesome to see all of those HR's on the back.
He was quite a power hitter: 374 HR & 1,159 RBI in 1,861 games. His best season wa 1961: .290 average, 45 HR & 140 RBI. He hit 4 HR in one game in 1959.
Great power hitter and one of the most popular men ever to wear the Indians' uniform.
