Career highlights and awards

Roy Maxwell Alvis (born February 2, 1938 in Jasper, Texas) is a former Major League Baseball third baseman who played with the Cleveland Indians (1962-69) and Milwaukee Brewers (1970). He batted and threw right-handed.

Alvis became the everyday third baseman for the Indians in 1963. He enjoyed single-season career-high numbers in batting average (.274), RBI (67), runs (81), hits (165), doubles (32) and triples (7). He added 22 home runs (also a personal high), and appeared to be on his way to stardom, but a bout with spinal meningitis disabled him for six weeks in 1964 (a season in which he hit 18 homers in only 381 at-bats). He recovered but was never the same ballplayer.

Nevertheless, Alvis made a remarkable comeback in 1965, hitting 21 home runs, and was rewarded by being selected for the All-Star game. He turned in a solid 18 HR performance in 1966 and led the team with 21 in 1967. He declined the next two seasons and was dealt to the Brewers in the 1970 spring training. As a backup in Milwaukee, he hit .183 with three homers in 62 games, being released at the end of the season.
