Floyd Patterson (January 4, 1935 - May 11, 2006) was an American heavyweight boxing champion. At 21, Patterson became the youngest man to win the world heavyweight championship until Mike Tyson. He had a record of 55 wins 8 losses and 1 draw, with 40 wins by knockout. . Born into a poor family i…n Waco, North Carolina, Patterson was the youngest of eleven children and experienced an insular and troubled childhood. His family moved to Brooklyn, New York, where Floyd was a truant and petty thief. At age ten, he was sent to the Wiltwyck School for Boys, a reform school in upstate New York, which he credited with turning his life around. He stayed there for almost 2 years.. At age fourteen he started to box, trained by Cus D'Amato at his Gramercy Gym. Aged just 17, Patterson won the Gold medal in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics as a middleweight. 1952 turned out to be a good year for the young Patterson; in addition to Olympic gold Patterson won the National Amateur Middleweight Championship and New York Golden Gloves Middleweight championship.. By the 1950s, Patterson was a resident of Rockville Centre, New York.. Olympic Results . Defeated Omar Tebakka, points . Defeated Leonardus Jansen KO 1 . Defeated Stig Sjolin DQ 3 . Defeated Vassile Tita KO 1 . Patterson's amateur record over 44 fights was 40-4, with 37 knockouts.. Patterson carried his hands higher than most boxers, in front of his face. Sportswriters called Patterson's style a "peek-a-boo" stance.. Early Pro career . Patterson turned pro and steadily rose through the ranks, his only early defeat was an eight-round decision to former light heavyweight champion Joey Maxim on June 7, 1954, at the Eastern Parkway Arena in Brooklyn, New York. . Champion . Although Patterson fought around the light heavyweight limit for much of his early career, he and manager Cus D'Amato always had plans to fight for the heavyweight championship. In fact, D'Amato made these plans clear as early as 1954, when he told the press that Patterson was aiming for the heavyweight title.  However, when Rocky Marciano announced his retirement as heavyweight champion of the world on April 27, 1956, Patterson was ranked by Ring magazine as the top light heavyweight contender. At the time of Marciano's announcement, Jim Norris of the International Boxing Club stated that Patterson was one of the fighters who would take part in an elimination tournament to crown Marciano's successor. Ring then moved Patterson into the heavyweight rankings, at number five.  . After beating Tommy "Hurricane" Jackson in an elimination fight, Patterson faced light heavyweight champion Archie Moore on November 30, 1956, for the world heavyweight championship. He beat Moore by a knockout in five rounds, and became the youngest world heavyweight champion in history, at the age of 21 years and 10 months. As a result, he was the first Olympic gold medalist to win a heavyweight title.. After a series of defenses, Patterson met Ingemar Johansson of Sweden, in the first of three fights. Johansson triumphed over Patterson on June 26, 1959, with the referee Ruby Goldstein stopping the fight in the third round after the Swede had knocked Patterson down seven times. Johansson became that country's first world heavyweight champion, thus becoming a national hero in Sweden as the first European to defeat an American for the title since 1933.. Patterson knocked Johansson out in the fifth round of their rematch on June 20, 1960, with a left hook to become the first man to recover the world's undisputed heavyweight title. Johansson hit the canvas with a thud, out before he landed flat on his back. With blood trickling from his mouth, his glazed eyes staring up at the ring lights, and his left foot quivering, the Swede was counted out. Johansson lay unconscious for five minutes before he was placed on a stool brought into the ring. He was still dazed and unsteady fifteen minutes after the knockout as he was helped out of the ring. With this win, Patterson became the first man in the history of boxing to regain the world heavyweight championship.. A third fight between them was held on March 13, 1961, and while Johansson put Patterson on the floor, Patterson retained his title by a knockout in six to win a wild rubber match in which Patterson was decked twice and Johannson once in the first round.. Some of the more questionable opponents he faced as Champion, including 1960 Olympic Champion Pete Rademacher fighting in his first professional match, led to charges that Patterson was ducking number one contender Sonny Liston. Patterson, stung by the criticism, agreed to fight Liston.. After one more defense, Patterson lost his title on September 25, 1962, by a knockout in the first round to Liston. The two fighters were a marked contrast. In the ring, Liston's size and power proved too much for Patterson's guile and agility. Ten months later on July 22, 1963, Patterson attempted to become the first boxer ever to win the world's heavyweight title three times, but Liston once again knocked him out in the first round.. Following these defeats, Patterson went through a depression, often donning sunglasses and hats to disguise himself in public. However, he eventually recovered and began winning fights again, including victories over Eddie Machen and George Chuvalo. Patterson became the number one challenger for the title now held by Muhammad Ali. On November 22, 1965, in yet another attempt to be the first to win the world's heavyweight title three times, Patterson lost by technical knockout at the end of the 12th round.. Despite this loss, Patterson was still a legitimate contender. In 1966 he traveled to England and knocked out British boxer Henry Cooper in just four rounds at Wembley Stadium. In comparison, Ali never scored a knockdown against Cooper in two fights with the Britisher.. In September of 1969 he divorced his first wife Sandra Hicks Patterson. She wanted him to quit boxing. He was not ready to quit yet, he knew he could get another chance at the title.. The World Boxing Association staged an eight-man tournament to determine Ali's successor. Patterson lost a controversial twelve round decision to Jerry Quarry in 1967. Then Patterson, in a third and final attempt at winning the title a third time, lost a controversial fifteen-round referee's decision to Jimmy Ellis in Sweden despite breaking Ellis' nose. This fight also included a disputed Patterdown knockdown of Ellis.. Patterson went on, defeating Oscar Bonavena in a close fight over ten rounds in early 1972. However, a final defeat to Muhammad Ali in a rematch for the North American Boxing Federation heavyweight title on September 20, 1972, convinced Patterson to retire at the age of 37.. Retired life . In retirement, he and Johansson became good friends who flew across the Atlantic to visit each other every year, and he became chairman of the New York State Athletic Commission. He was also inducted into the International Boxing Hall Of Fame.. In 1982 and 1983 he ran the Stockholm Marathon together with Ingemar Johansson.. Patterson lived in New Paltz, New York for many years and was known as a true gentlemen around town. He was a Latin Rite Catholic convert and a member of the Knights of Columbus.. His adopted son, Tracy Harris Patterson, was a world champion boxer in the 1990s and was trained by Floyd during part of his career.. The New Paltz High School football field was named "Floyd Patterson Field" in 1985.. Death . Floyd Patterson suffered from Alzheimer's disease and prostate cancer and had been hospitalized for a week prior to his death. He died at home in New Paltz in 2006 at age 71. He is buried at New Paltz Rural Cemetery in New Paltz, Ulster County, New York. . ( Full Answer )
Haywood Patterson who was a young black boy born in Elberton, Georgia in 1913 was only 14 years old when he was riding the rails looking for work. He was 18 years old when he rode the rails on a freight rain that was going to Alabama and he had his friend Eugene Williams and Roy and Andy Wright. Hay…wood Patterson admitted that he was the one who fought with white hobos who tried to force them off the train, but the charge against him was rape. The first trial with 9 Scottsboro defendants were tried in groups. On March 19033 he faced Judge James Horton of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. The trials ended in the death penalty, but the judge set it aside and the second trial Judge William Callahan also resulted in a death penalty. Unfortunately the filing deadlines were missed and Patterson lost his right to appeal. Fortunately the U.S. Supreme Court realized the two cases were interrelated and the lower courts were asked to re look at the Patterson case. During this time Patterson spent time in prison and relied on a knife he had made to help survive in prison. Although well liked he did have enemies and had to stave off rape from fellow prisoners. On Feb. 1941 a guard paid one of Patterson's friends to kill him and that friend stabbed Patterson 20 times puncturing a lung, but Patterson survived. He was then transferred to Kilby Prison to work on the prison farm. In 1948 he was successful re a prison break and escaped to Detroit, but was caught soon after by the FBI, but the governor of Michigan refused to allow him to be extradited to Alabama. Patterson was still in Detroit and although he could barely read or write he worked with journalist Earl Conrad to write his autobiography 'Scottsboro Boy' published in June 1950. In December 1950 Patterson was arrested after a fight in a bar resulting in a stabbing death. It was hung jury re the first trial, but the second trail was deemed a mistrial. After the third trial Patterson was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 6 to 15 years, but only served one year as he died of cancer in jail on August 24, 1952. ( Full Answer )

Rubber boots, similar to riding boots, but made from rubber and designed to keep you dry when walking in wet weather. Named Wellingtons after the Duke of Wellington - who first wore them.
The first Duke of Wellington instructed his shoemaker, Hoby of St. James' Street, London, to modify the 18th century Hessian boot. The resulting new boot designed in soft calfskin leather had the trim removed and was cut more closely around the leg. The heels were low cut, stacked around an inch, an…d the boot stopped at mid-calf. It was hard wearing for battle yet comfortable for the evening. The Iron Duke didn't know what he'd started-the boot was dubbed the Wellington and the name has stuck ever since. The Duke can be seen wearing the boots, which are tasseled, in an 1815 portrait by James Lonsdale. ( Full Answer )

What were the fielding stats for baseball player George Patterson playing at outfield for the Philadelphia Keystones in 1884?
George Patterson played in 2 games at outfield for the Philadelphia Keystones in 1884, starting in none of them. He made one putout, had one assist, and committed 2 errors, equivalent to 1 errors per game (estimate based on total games played in). He had no double plays.
In 1884, George Patterson played for the Philadelphia Keystones. On Base Percentage (OBP) is considered by many to be a better measure of a great hitter than the Batting Average. It is calculated with the formula (Hits + Walks + Hit by Pitch) / (At Bats + Walks + Hit by Pitch + Sacrifice Flies). …In 1884, George Patterson had 7 at bats, 1 hit, 0 walks, and was hit by the pitch times. Sacrifice flies weren't counted before 1954. That gives him an On Base Percentage of .143. Slugging Percentage (SLG) is a popular measure of a batter's power. It is calculated as (Total Bases) / (At Bats). Another way to look at it is (Singles + 2 x Doubles + 3 x Triples + 4 x Home Runs) / (At Bats). In 1884, George Patterson had 7 at bats, and hit 1 single, 0 doubles, 0 triples, and 0 home runs, for a .143 slugging percentage. Being able to get on base and to hit for power are two of the most important offensive skills in baseball, so the On Base Percentage and Slugging Percentage are often added together. On-base plus slugging (OPS) is a sabermetric baseball statistic. The best hitters in Major League Baseball can achieve an OPS of .900 or higher. In 1884, George Patterson had a .143 On Base Percentage and a .143 Slugging Percentage for an OPS of .286. Runs Created (RC) is a baseball statistic invented by Bill James to estimate the number of runs a hitter contributes to his team. There are a number of formulas used to calculate it. One of the simplest is (On Base Percentage) Ã (Total Bases). In 1884, George Patterson had a .143 On Base Percentage and 1 Total Bases for .14 Runs Created. ( Full Answer )
