    His nickname was Kelly.
    He was fired by the Braves as he started the 1952 season with a 13-22 losing record.
    He didn't start playing in the 1950 season because of an injury until the month of June.
    Phil Cavarretta beat him for the 1945 NL MVP Award.
    Despite recording an 8th inning RBI in Game 1 of the 1948 World Series, the Braves lost the series to the Cleveland Indians in 6 games.
    He was a member of two World Series losing teams (1948 and 1952).
    He was left-handed.
    He was one of the Boston Braves' popular players.
    He was barely struck out in most occasions.
    He ended three no-hitter bids in the early stages of his major league career.
    He recorded a 37 game hitting streak in the 1945 season; it was an NL record that stood for 33 years until Pete Rose overtook it in 1978.
    He thanked Rose for remembering him at the time his 37 game hitting streak was broken.
