RIP Minnie Minoso

One of the great stars of the 1950s and a much-admired pioneer in integrating MLB. He was the first black player for the Chisox. 

The Chicago Trib obit mentions that he had  finished 4th in the MVP voting 4 times and had a WAR of 8.3 in 1954. 

He had a career WAR over 50 despite getting to play regularly until he was 25. He never played in the postseason.
