With there next selction the Greeley Grays chose
Kirby Puckett Minnesota Twins
BIO-A fun-loving and gregarious ball player, Kirby Puckett totaled 12 solid seasons with the Minnesota Twins. The 1982 first-round draft choice hit for power and average, batting .318 with 207 home runs. A true team leader, Puckett led the Twins to a pair of World Series titles in 1987 and 1991. The six-time Gold Glove winner was named to 10 consecutive All-Star teams from 1986 to 1995. Puckett finished among the top 10 in MVP voting seven times, only to have his career end prematurely after the 1995 season due to irreversible retina damage in his right eye.

Ron Santo

Ron Santo is the greatest third baseman in Chicago Cubs' history. He hit 342 career home runs and won five Gold Gloves. Playing all but one season with the Cubs, Santo never made it to the post-season. He hit 30 homers and batted .300 four times each, despite playing much of his career in an era where scoring was suppressed. He paced the National League in walks four times. He topped NL third basemen in putouts seven times, assists seven times, and double plays four times.

I will select "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, LF Athletics/Naps/White Sox



One of the great players of his generation, Jackson is more famous for being one of the players banned for life after the fallout from the "Black Sox" scandal. Chicago players, in cahoots with gamblers and in spite of tightwad owner Charlie Comisky, threw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. While they were cleared of all charges in court, those involved were kicked out of baseball by then commissioner Kenesaw "Mountain" Landis.

Great pick. I can't believe the Hall of Fame has missed this guy. Santo has endured the worst health issues in recent years. I hope they get him in soon and bring some joy to his life.

One of the great players of his generation, Jackson is more famous for being one of the players banned for life after the fallout from the "Black Sox" scandal. Chicago players, in cahoots with gamblers and in spite of tightwad owner Charlie Comisky, threw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. While they were cleared of all charges in court, those involved were kicked out of baseball by then commissioner Kenesaw "Mountain" Landis.
Another great pick.

Jackson was aware of what was going on in 1919, but he clearly wasn't participating. Jackson's .375 average led the Sox in the Series. He also led the team in runs scored (5) and RBI (6) and he hit Chicago's only home run.

The superb film Eight Men Out depict Jackson as a guileless country boy who was intimidated by Chick Gandil and the other conspirators and it rings true given his performance on the field.

Bronc 52, you son of a $#!@*!

I couldn't pass up Palmer, but Satch was on my radar.

Damn!

Breck Bronc's time has expired. That puts me back on the clock, I'll have my pick up in a little while. Breck may make his two selections at any time.

Damn. I was at work all day and then went straight to training camp (with my sideline passes ). I haven't had a chance to get on a computer since 6:00 am this morning.

Ok, I'll take Carl Hubbell, P, New York Giants.

Then I'll take Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, P, Cardinals/Cubs/Reds and two teams from the Federal League.

I think I might draft Antonio Alfonseca with a later pick just to give Mordecai company.

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."

Killericon is happy to strengthen his pitching rotation with Phil Niekro.



Philip Henry Niekro (born April 1, 1939 in Blaine, Ohio) is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

With 318 career victories, Niekro is one of the most successful knuckleball pitchers of all time. He was also an excellent fielder, winning the National League Gold Glove award five times. Together with his brother and sometime teammate Joe, the Niekro brothers are the winningest brother combination in baseball history, with 539 wins between them. Phil Niekro's 121 career victories after the age of 40 is a major league record, and his longevity is attributed to the knuckleball, which, while a difficult pitch for pitchers to master, is easy on the arm and difficult for batters to hit. He is also the uncle of current MLB player Lance Niekro.

Niekro pitched for 20 seasons for the Atlanta Braves (two of those seasons when the team was still in Milwaukee) and was popular in the city of Atlanta for remaining loyal to a team that often had a losing record, as well as for his contributions to Atlanta charities. On August 5, 1973, he threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres.

The Braves released the 45-year-old Niekro in 1984, who then signed with the New York Yankees and went on to win 16 games and make the last of his five All-Star appearances. It was while pitching for the Yankees that Niekro gained entry into the exclusive 300 win club with a shutout win over the Toronto Blue Jays on October 6, 1985. At 46, Niekro became the oldest pitcher to pitch a shutout in the major leagues, and became the only pitcher to throw a complete game shutout for his 300th win. Ironically, he did not throw his trademark knuckleball until the final hitter.

After two seasons in New York, Niekro pitched for the Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays in 1986 and 1987. The Blue Jays released him after he pitched ineffectively, and as a publicity stunt, the Braves brought him back for one last start to wrap up his career late in the 1987 season. At the age of 48, Niekro was the oldest player in major league history to play regularly, and his 24 seasons in the major leagues without a World Series appearance is a major league record. He only appeared in the post season twice, making a playoff start in 1969 and again in 1982, both for Braves teams that would go on to lose the series.

After the end of his professional baseball career, Niekro managed the all-women Colorado Silver Bullets baseball team. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1997.

Career ERA of 3.35.
