Roberto Petagine (41) -A case of the fans being way ahead of old-school baseball men. Anyone who had read even a little about sabermetrics could see that Roberto's walks and power compensated for his low batting average, but no one was really willing to give him a full chance. Instead he went to Japan and became a big star. How good was he really? I guess we'll never know.
Roger Nelson (68) -I knew as soon as I saw him that trading Hal McRae for this guy was a bad idea. Old-time scouts talk about a player having a "good face"- Nelson had a horrible face for a player. He didn't look like he could do anything more athletic than prepare your taxes for you.
Thurman Munson -The first Yankee captain since Gehrig, and the only Yankee to win both a ROY and an MVP.
Don Money (65) -Phillie third baseman before Schmidt. Hit the first HR in Veteran's Stadium. On April 10 of 1976, he hit a grand slam that was disallowed because the first base umpire had called time as the pitch was being delivered...Currently managing Nashville, I think...
Herb Score -Wild, fireballing lefty who dominated before the accident that you all know about. The first full-time starting pitcher to average more than a strikeout an inning. Later a longtime Indians broadcaster.
Hub Perdue -Mentioned here because of his wonderful nickname: "The Gallatin Squash".
