What do you look for in a player, or what was it about players past that made them so appealing to you?
Is it their obvious love for the game, their intensity, flashy playmaking ability, raw power, or something else that drew you in?
For me, I've always had a fascination with speedy players. I think it's because they have all the skills I never did when I played baseball. Watching a guy glide his way into a triple or swipe a base is one of the greatest things to watch in baseball for me. Growing up in Columbus in the 90's I had easy access to both Reds and Indians baseball and I loved watching guys like Kenny Lofton and Deion Sanders. Now I'm naturally a fan of Freel, who also possesses another great quality in "scrappiness."
So what is it for you?
