|SIERRA, PALMER AND FRANCO WERE TEAMMATES IN '91-'92.|
HALL OF FAMERS
- No. 162 Dave Winfield was inducted in 2001 on the first ballot with 84.5 percent of the vote.
FINEST OF THE NINE
- Winfield was one of the game's finest athletes as evidenced by being drafted by four professional leagues. But he made his mark in baseball, becoming one of only seven players to reach 3,000 hits and 450 home runs.
- No. 161 Julio Franco made old farts like me proud when he became the oldest player in major-league history to homer at age 48 on May 4, 2007. The fact he did it against No. 154 Randy Johnson made it even more memorable.
DESIGNED TO THE NINES
- Winfield's card captures the intensity of player. As talented as he was, the man played with a grit-your-teeth fury few could match.
