Bobby Avila

Bobby Ávila was a three-time American League All-Star, noted for both his offensive and defensive talents, who also was prominent for his off-field endeavors after his playing days. He starred in three different countries. He won the 1954 AL batting title and was a key part of the Cleveland Indians squad that held the junior circuit record for wins in a season for over four decades. In the Mexican League, he nearly broke one of Cool Papa Bell's records while setting the record for walks in a season (later broken). He was an All-Star in the Cuban Winter League as well. He was president of the Mexican League after his playing career ended and entered politics, becoming the mayor of Veracruz, his hometown. He was inducted into Mexico's Hall of Fame and had two stadiums named after him.
