Mickey Hatcher, 1988 Topps

Bats: RIght
Throws: Right
Debut: 8/3/79
Final Game: 10/3/90

Career Line: .280 /.313/.377

I have basically one memory of Mickey Hatcher. He hit a home run in the 1988 World Series, and he literally sprinted around the bases. I think about that home run sprint whenever the '88 sereis is brought up. For me, it was nearly as memorable as Gibson's amazing HR to win game 1. In that series against the A's, Hatcher hit 2 home runs. In the entire 1988 regular season, he hit a total of 1.
