Richard Anthony Allen (born March 8, 1942, in Wampum, Pennsylvania) is a former Major League Baseball player. He played first and third base and outfield in Major League Baseball and ranked among his sport's top offensive producers 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 (the AL twice) and on base percentage. His .534 career slugging average was among the highest in an era marked by low averages. He won the 1964 National League Rookie of the Year and 1972 AL MVP. Also famous for speaking his mind, combatting racism, and bucking organizational hierarchy, Dick Allen was rated by sabermetrician Bill James as the second-most controversial player in baseball history, behind Rogers Hornsby. The ever-opinionated James stated that Allen "did more to keep his teams from winning than anybody else who ever played major league baseball."
His older brother Hank was a reserve outfielder for three AL teams, and his younger brother Ron was briefly a first baseman with the 1972 St. Louis Cardinals.
