Allen began his professional career with the NYPL's Elmira Pioneers in 1960, hitting .281 with 8 home runs and 42 RBI. In his 15-year MLB career, Allen hit .292 with 351 home runs and 1,119 RBI. He was the NL Rookie of the Year in 1964 with the Philadelphia Phillies and the AL MVP in 1972 with the Chicago White Sox. Famed baseball historian Bill James ranks Allen with Jimmie Foxx and Mickey Mantle, and just a notch below Babe Ruth, as the four top long-distance sluggers ever to wield a baseball bat.
