I heard a short documentary of him driving home and one thing they said was that fellow players feared him after a mistake in the field but off the field he was the nicest guy. I also didn't know that he hit 586 HR's and was named MVP of both the National and American league.

I think he was the 11th or 12th to eclipse the 500 HR mark.
