It was also his glove that made him famous as he won eight Gold Glove awards in his career. In addition to his Gold Gloves, he made three All Star games in 1966, 1975 and 1977.
His uniform was a bit unique also. He wore a necklace that he said was made up of teeth of middle infielders. He also wore a batting helmet in the field because of a prior experience of a fan throwing objects on the field.
