Luis Aparicio

Leadoff hitter for the 1959 Chicago White Sox, known as the Go-Go Sox. As soon as the sure-hitting Luis would get on base, Comiskey Park fans would start chanting, “Go go go go go” to encourage Aparicio to steal second, which he did at a frightening clip.

Aparicio holds the all time Major League record for number of games played at shortstop, double plays, and assists and the AL records for putouts and total chances.and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1984.

He was also a pitchman for Gillette razors.
