Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leonard Eugene Alley (born July 10, 1940 in Richmond, Virginia) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop who played his entire career for the Pittsburgh Pirates (1963-73). Alley was a modest hitter but an exceptionally steady shortstop with good range and an accurate throwing arm. He won two Gold Glove Awards at shortstop (1966-67) and also garnered two All-Star appearances primarily on the strength of his glove. He spent most of his career turning double plays with Baseball Hall of Fame second baseman Bill Mazeroski, and the duo set a MLB record of 161 double plays in a season in 1966 that still stands (when the Pirates set a National League record with 215 total double plays).show more
