Why did Ed Schott nominate Jim Gentile for the HOM?

My Dad said Don't ever act like that #4 guy playing 1st base" Had to be 1963 at Baltimores Memorial Stadium I was 6. But I liked him and his intensity and he hit left handed as did I. Later when I got back into cards there was just something about him that still struck a chord. I met him a few times and got autos ..A perfect handsome even at 75 gentleman. He remarked in a meet and greet for fans at OPACY: "I have one regret and that's."I should have controlled my temper. I would have been a much better ballplayer"
