Major league catcher who overcame drug and alcohol addiction to play in four All-Star games and win the World Series.
He was a first-round draft pick of the Brewers.
He caused controversy in 1980 when he publicly announced that he was an addict, and his subsequent memoir painted a deeper portrait of the man.
He grew up in Joplin, Missouri.
He and Roy Campanella were among the handful of catchers who tallied 100 RBIs and scored 100 runs in a single season.
