A PCL Hall of Famer, Bernier might have been a major league great, but his extreme temper, often compared to that of Ty Cobb, kept him in the minors and the Puerto Rican leagues most of his career. There is still debate as to whether Bernier or Curt Roberts was the first black player to take the field for the Pirates (in 1953). Some claim Roberts to be South American, while others claim he is black. The debate will likely go on until the end of time.
