Mickey Hatcher

This clubhouse comic and team energizer sometimes wears a batting helmet with a propeller on it. He became the nation’s darling with his 1988 postseason play. After hitting only one HR all year, he homered in the first inning of the first and final WS games and made the finest defensive plays of the Series. An enthusiastic, hustling player, he would have been WS MVP but for Orel Hershiser. Hatcher spent six seasons with the Twins as an effective utility player, then was released during the spring of 1987 before signing with the Dodgers.
