Mickey Hatcher: Speak Softly and Carry a Big Glove

"Fun-loving" should be Mickey Hatcher's middle name. He broke into the Bigs with the Dodgers in 1979 and ended his career also with the Dodgers in 1990, with a six-year stint with the Twins.

Mickey had an incredible World Series in 1988 when he filled in for an injured Kirk Gibson, helping the Dodgers win the 1988 title. He's currently the Angels batting coach.

Mickey's sense of humor is on display in this 1991 Upper Deck card, as the "Big Glove" enjoyed some serious exposure.
