Mathews, Edwin Lee
▪ 2002
      American professional baseball player (b. Oct. 13, 1931, Texarkana, Texas—d. Feb. 18, 2001, San Diego, Calif.), was one of major league baseball's most prolific hitters, with 512 home runs and 2,315 hits in his 17-year career, and was widely regarded as the best third baseman of the 1950s and early '60s. Mathews made his major league debut with the Boston Braves in 1952 and remained with the franchise when it moved to Milwaukee, Wis., the following year and to Atlanta, Ga., in 1966; he was the only person to play with the Braves in all three cities. He helped Milwaukee win the World Series in 1957. In Atlanta, Mathews and Hank Aaron established the all-time home-run record for teammates, with 863 between 1954 and 1966. Mathews played in 10 All-Star Games, and he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1978.
