Richard Anthony Allen is a former first and third baseman and outfielder in Major League Baseball who was known as one of the sport's top right-handed power hitters of the 1960s and early 1970s. Most notably playing for the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox, he led the American League in home runs twice, and led both leagues in slugging average and on base percentage. His .534 career slugging average was among the highest in an era marked by low averages. The 1964 National League Rookie of the Year and 1972 AL MVP, his mercurial personality led to a series of suspensions, fights and disputes which marred his career. His uncertain and often disinterested defensive play led to his leading the league in errors four times - twice each at third and first base. He lead the league in strikeouts in his first two seasons; he retired with the fifth most strikeouts in history.
