Fred McGriff

Fred McGriffOne of the nicest guys to play baseball, Fred McGriff was a relatively quiet player who went about his business over the course of his 19-year career. McGriff hit just under 500 homers (493), and he was never suspected of using performance enhancing drugs despite playing in the steroid era. It wasn’t a coincidence that after he arrived in Atlanta, the Braves won their only two pennants of their long playoff run, in 1995 and 1996. He helped bolster the middle of their lineup, providing a productive bat to go along with Chipper Jones. McGriff was one of the first stars to play in a Tampa Bay uniform, playing for the Devil Rays in their first four seasons.
