    Easily my favorite baseball player of all time. Played his Super Nintendo game all the time when I was younger, and even copied his batting stance in my second year of tee-ball. :p

    And unlike a couple of other childhood idols (Sosa and McGwire), he's clean. A great choice for this tourney.
