Former professional baseball right fielder Enos Slaughter was born April 27, 1916 in Roxboro, North Carolina. Slaughter played for the St. Louis Cardinals (1938-1942, 1946-1953), the New York Yankees (1954-1955, 1956-1959), the Kansas City Athletics (1955-1956) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1959). Slaughter was a 10-time All-Star selection (1941-1942, 1946-1953) and a 4-time World Series Champion (1942, 1946, 1956 & 1958). Known for a smooth, flat swing that made him a reliable "contact" hitter, Slaughter presently ranks second in RBIs with 1,148; fifth in ABs with 6,775; and sixth in doubles with 366. His career accomplishments are especially impressive considering that he missed 3 seasons beginning in 1943 (when he was 27) to serve in the military during World War II. The St. Louis Cardinals have retired his #8 jersey number and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985 by the Veterans Committee. Slaughter passed away on August 12, 2002 in Durham, North Carolina at the age of 85.

He is recognized as the first pitcher to have saved 200 games in his career, and the first pitcher to appear in 1,000 games. He is also one of the oldest players to have pitched in the major leagues; his final appearance was 16 days short of his 49th birthday.

Brook retired the career stolen base leader (938) and held the record until it was broke in 1990 by Rickey Henderson, who also holds the single season record. Brock was a 6-time All-Star selection (1976, 1971, 1972, 1974, 1975 & 1979), a 2-time World Series Champion (1964 & 1967), the 1967 Babe Ruth Award winner, the 1976 Roberto Clemente Award winner, 1977 Lou Gehrig Memorial Award, the 1979 NL Comeback Player of the Year, among other honors.
