#54 - Rico Petrocelli
His real name is Americo. Other than that the text just mentions the basics - World Series, All-Star, etc. He likes drag racing and playing the drums - great to tell the kids of America and their parents that.
Wait, Americo is his first name? I've got to check this out on baseball-reference.com. A search on the name found three other matches.
David Ortiz has Americo as his middle name. He was born in the Dominican Republic.
Buddy Biancalana also has a middle name of Americo. He was born in California.
Rico was born in Brooklyn, NY.
The last player listed is Louis Americo Polli who played from 1932 - 1944. He was born in Italy where maybe that name is more common.
It's a fact - Joe DiMaggio was the last AL player to surpass 400 total bases when he had 418 in 1937.
Not on the card - 29 times in MLB history has a player gotten at least 400 total bases. It has only happened eight times since DiMaggio did it with only one being in the AL. Can you name the AL player or the five NL players (two players did this twice) to do this?
Lou Gehrig accounted for five of these 29 occurrences.
