Jewish major leaguer who spent seven seasons with the Phillies, Reds and Giants, playing left field.
His parents expected him to become a rabbi, but he harbored dreams of a professional baseball career.
What he lacked in talent and physical size - he stood 5'10", 160 lbs - he made up for in hard work and hustle.
He was born in Superior, Wisconsin, into a religious Jewish family, his father running a chain of gas stations.
Unlike Hank Greenberg and most Jewish baseball players, Arnovich kept his diet strictly kosher.
