Gus Polidor

This good-fielding utility man’s best year was 1987, when he hit .263 in 137 at-bats. After dropping off to .148 in 1988 he was traded to the Brewers for Bill Schroeder. He played in a career-high 79 games in ’89, but his batting average never again rose above the Mendoza line.

Polidor was shot to death in his native Venezuela in April 1995 after a brief comeback attempt with Montreal.
