Grady Hatton

Hatton jumped straight to the Reds from military service in 1946, hitting .271 with 14 HR and 69 RBI. He followed in 1947 with 16 HR, 77 RBI, 91 runs, and a .281 average, but tailed off thereafter. He managed the Oklahoma City 89ers to two pennants in three years and then managed the Astros from 1966 to 1968. He finished eighth, ninth, and last, despite the presence of Rusty Staub, Jim Wynn, Bob Watson, Nate Colbert, Mike Cuellar, Larry Dierker, Don Wilson, Doug Rader, and Joe Morgan (whom he tried to turn into an outfielder).
