Retired Major League Baseball infielder known for his slick defense and speed on the basepaths.
He earned the name Pokey because he was overweight as a child and the neighborhood kids called him "Porky" in a southern accent.
He won two gold glove awards for his top notch defense at second base.
His grandmother was a guiding influence in his life.
He and Brandon Phillips were both star defensive infielders for the Reds.
