If you watched baseball in the late 80s and through the 90s, this mafu*ka was as steady as they come...hit his 23-33 homers, hit .280, play pretty solid defense, and he did it without a needle. 493 homers, 1550 rbis...90s really had some star Black players for real...

even though as a Mets fan, I was on the bad end of Crime dog mobbing on us, I gotta salute this great Brave and great Major League Baller...

shame on braves fans for not doing this...I could see the fake a*s fans like zone3, or young a*s fans who don't do their hw on their own team like lilsnatch...

but @abstractq (especially u) and @ghettofied, shaking Andruw jones' head at ya'll...

I forgot to mention what the first vid within the link said (unable to post...or i'm old)...he's the first player to hit 30 homers for 5 different teams...I forgot he traveled like that for a really good player who produced pretty much everywhere he went...

vid also mentions how he got the name crime dog...(from Kirby Puckett...rip)

HOF off the nickname alone.

I don't care the sport. You tell me a guy named Crime Dog is playing/f*ghting, I'm interested.

From yahoo sports:

McGriff was [unanimously] elected via the first vote of the contemporary baseball era committee, a group tasked with considering modern-day players (1980 to present) who weren't enshrined via the traditional vote taken by the Baseball Writers' a*sociation of America. McGriff will join the rest of the class of 2023 that's voted on by the BBWA. It will be announced on Jan. 24.

The committee rejected seven other nominees, including Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Rafael Palmeiro, who are all linked to baseball's steroid era. Bonds, Clemens, Palmeiro and Albert Belle all received fewer than four votes from the 16-member committee. Like with the BBWA, a player needs 75% of the votes to be enshrined.
they need to cut the sh*t with Bonds and Clemens...they let David Ortiz in first ballot, who was a known PED user...but because he does commercials, appearances, and analysis work on your network, and Bonds tell them go fu*k themselves, it's all good...smh...that's why they can't ever play the morals game...

Spent a few seasons with the Padres before he went to ATL. That’s the main team I remember him from. Solid, steady & never had a negative headline. A Pro’s pro

Crime dog was my sh*t back in the day man. Good on him. Glad he's going to the Hall. I remember those days with Mark Lemke, Steve Avery, Mark Wohlers, Marquis Grissom, Andrew Jones when he was REALLLLLLLLLLLLLL young. Those teams were so, damn fun to watch. Ted Turner was spending like a MFer.

That’s how I ended up becoming a braves fan. They had some great Black baseball players.
