    Most will probably remember him from his time with the Yankees. But, I always remember him from his short time in Cleveland. He rocked that 'fro.

    Me too, guys. He was one of my favorite players on the Indians simply because I loved how his 'fro nearly engulfed his hat. Funny the things that make an impression when you are a kid. I have a baseball card or two of him.

    When I think of Oscar, I first think "afro," then "Indians." Good ball player.

    Loved the hair! I would have loved to see him put his batting helmet on. RIP
