Ken Keltner played 11 seasons for the Cleveland Indians and was selected an All Star third baseman seven times. But, the Milwaukee native always will be best known for making two great fielding plays that robbed Joe DiMaggio of hits and ended The Yankee Clippers 56-game hitting streak on July 17, 1941.
Keltner also hit a single, double and three-run home run in the first American League playoff game. His contributions helped the Indians beat the Boston Red Sox in that 1948 game. Keltner had 31 homers and 119 RBI in that season.
In 1,526 major league games, Keltner averaged .276 with 163 homers and 852 RBI.
