The Crime Dog
During my childhood love affair with MLB, Fred McGriff was one bad dude. He was like good-guy bad. He wouldn't take any smack and wouldn't talk any either. He was clutch, money at 1st base, and a part of one of the most iconic instructional baseball videos of all time...
It sucks that he is not a part of the greats in Cooperstown. He will always be a hero to me.
