On October 23, 1940, Pelé whose full name was Edson Arantes do Nascimento was born in Três Corações, Minas Gerais, Brazil.  Pelé was considered by many to be the greatest soccer player or footballer ever to play the game.  Pelé was a retired Brazilian professional footballer who was the most successful league scorer in the world with 541 league goals.  He had a total of 1281 goals in 1363 games.  He was a part of three Brazilian World Cup-Champion teams.  The greatest soccer player in the world grew up in poverty and learned the game from his father playing with a sock stuffed with newspaper.  The child who could not afford a football, would eventually become the highest paid athlete in the world.  Pelé played professionally for Santos in Brazil from 1956 -1974 and the New York Cosmos from 1975 - 1977.
