CF Andre Dawson

Andre Nolan Dawson (Hawk)



Born July 10, 1954 in Miami, FL

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 3", Weight 195 lb.

Debut September 11, 1976
Final Game September 29, 1996

My all time favorite player. Bad knees and the unforgiving astroturf at Olympic Stadium prevented him from being a first ballot Hall of Famer.
  • NL Rookie of the Year in 1977.

  • NL MVP in 1987.

  • Second in NL MVP voting in 1981 and 1983.

  • Eight Gold Gloves. Four as a wide ranging CF and four as a cannon armed RF.

  • Steve Sax called Dawson, "The Ozzie Smith of outfielders."

  • Eight time All-Star.

  • 438 home runs were good for 25th all time when he retired.

  • Was the third man in baseball history to attain more than 400 HRs and 300 SBs.

  • Led the majors in home runs in 1987 with 49.

  • Led the majors with RBI in 1987 with 137.

  • Led the NL in hits in 1983.

  • Led the NL in total bases in 1983 and 1987.

  • Led the NL in extra base hits in 1982 and 1983.

  • Led the NL in hit by pitches four times.

  • Was intentionally walked five times in a 16 inning game, a major league record.

  • Dawson's 1591 RBI are 28th all time. Every player in history who has more RBI is in the Hall of Fame or not yet eligible for enshrinement.

  • His 1039 extra base hits are 21st all time. Every player in history who has more extra base hits is in the Hall of Fame or not yet eligible for enshrinement. The next eight players on the all time list for extra base hits who are eligible for enshrinement are also in the Hall of Fame.

"Nobody played on sheer guts and bad knees longer than Hawk.
He could have had a lot bigger numbers. He was a big-time player."
