Roy Campanella, born on November 19, 1921, was a trailblazing Major League Baseball catcher who overcame significant challenges to become one of the game’s all-time greats. Campanella played his entire career with the Brooklyn Dodgers, making his debut in 1948. Known for his exceptional defensive skills and powerful hitting, he played a pivotal role in the success of the Dodgers during their “Boys of Summer” era. Campanella won the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award three times (1951, 1953, 1955), becoming the first catcher to achieve such a feat. He was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.
