Tommy Davis
Herman Thomas Davis, Jr. (born March 21, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American former Major League Baseball left fielder and third baseman. He played from 1959-1976 for ten different teams, but he is best known for his years with the Los Angeles Dodgers. During an 18-year baseball career, Davis batted .294 with 153 home runs, 2,121 hits and 1,052 runs batted in. He was also one of the most proficient pinch-hitters in baseball history with a .320 batting average (63-for-197) – the highest in major league history upon his retirement, breaking the .312 mark of Frenchy Bordagaray. In 1962, he finished third in the MVP voting after leading the major leagues in batting average, hits and runs batted in. Davis' 153 RBIs in that season broke Roy Campanella's team record of 142 in 1953 and remain the franchise record; his 230 hits are the team record for a right-handed batter (second most in franchise history behind only Babe Herman's 241 in 1930), and his .346 average was the highest by a Dodger right-handed hitter in the 20th century until it was broken by Mike Piazza in 1997.

Tommy's Career Stats

 
Tony Olivia
Antonio Oliva, or "Tony-O" to those who followed his 24-year career as a Twins' player and coach, was a man who seemed to excell in all aspects of the game. He could hit for power and average, run, field and throw, and his versatility made him one of the most feared hitters of his day. Tony-O collected 1,917 hits and retired with a .304 career average. He is the only player to win batting titles in his first two seasons and was the winner of three in his 15-year career, which still stands as the club's longevity mark. His prowess as a hitter was demonstrated in the fact that he lead the league in hits five times, and his 220 career home runs rank third all-time among Twins. If not for knee problems which cut short his career, Oliva would have been a certain choice for the Hall of Fame. Oliva, the 1964 American League Rookie of the Year, began his coaching career in 1976. He now works as a hitting instructor in the Twins' minor league system and scouts for the club. He had his number 6 retired on July 14, 1991.
