Tony Perez

1964 - 1986

2777 games, 379 home runs, .279 batting average

The third Big Red Machine member to be inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame in 2000, clutch hitting Tony Perez is regarded as the "heart and soul" of that famous Reds dynasty. A seven-time All-Star and MVP of the 1967 All-Star Game, Perez appeared in five World Series and six League Championship Series. His 1,652 RBI are the most among players from Latin America and the 18th-highest total among all ML players. His number 24 was officially retired in 1998.
