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.
