Baseball legend Jim Landis passes away at 83

Landis learned to play outfield while in the minor leagues. He went on to win five consecutive Gold Gloves in eight seasons with the Chicago White Sox as a center fielder. He helped them win the 1959 American League pennant with a 94-60 record and reach the World Series, which they lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games.
Jim Landis was voted by fans to Chicago’s 27-player “Team of the Century” in 2000.

Chicago Tribune: Why Not Hawk Harrelson for the Hall of Fame?

“But, if contribution to baseball is the main criterion for election, Harrelson belongs in the Hall of Fame because he changed the game by popularizing a revolutionary piece of equipment. Today virtually every major-leaguer uses it, as do kids at every level down to Little League, and most girls use it in softball as well.”
