Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Anyone can be successful at baseball if he follows in the path of Bob Allison. All you have to do is be 6'4, strong as a weightlifter, handsome as a shirt model, have the personality of an honor graduate from Dale Carnegie, and, alas, work your head off." - Sportswriter Leonard Schecter in Sports Magazine (September 1964), quoted from The New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (Bill James, 'Best Right Fielders in History: 56. Bob Allison', Page 825)

Did you know that the Washington Senators were the first American League team to have back-to-back / consecutive players win a Rookie of the Year Award ? In 1958, Albie Pearson won Rookie of the Year , then in 1959, Bob Allison won Rookie of the Year .

Bob Allison and Harmon Killebrew | 1967 Topps (#334) | Baseball Almanac Collection
Twin Terrors (Mr. Upstairs and Mr. Downstairs)

On July 18, 1962 , Bob Allison hit a grand slam in the first inning off starting pitcher Barry Latman . Later, during the same inning, Harmon Killebrew hit a grand slam off relief pitcher Jim Perry making this "Twin Terrors" duo (pictured above) the first in American League history to each hit a grand slam in the same inning .

Bob Allison hit a home run in the eleventh inning on May 2, 1964 , off Dan Pfister . Tony Oliva had gone deep in the previous at-bat and after Allison circled the bases, Jimmie Hall and Harmon Killebrew also went deep. The four Minnesota Twins were the second set of four American League players to ever to hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs and the first in Major League history to accomplish the feat in extra innings.
