Jack DiLauro - another member of the 69 Amazin's . He was a lefty reliever called up in May of that year and posted a 2.40 ERA in 60+ innings. However, he was not used in the LCS or series. He played the following year for the Astros and that was the extent of his big league career.

Jim Eisenreich--former ML OF played for Twins, Royals, Phils, Marlins and Dodgers before retiring in 1998. Eisenreich compiled a .405 batting average against the Dodgers, which at the time during his playing days, had the best pitching staffs in baseball, which as of now, ranks as one of the best for a player against one team.

Between his stints with the Twins & Royals, he voluntarily retired from 1984-1987 to undergo treatment for Tourette's Syndrome--a condition that today, he has his own foundation helping children overcome that same challenge.

It just kills me when people gloss over anyone who played before the 1980s. Therefore...

Jimmy "Double X" Foxx, outstanding first baseman/infielder who split most of his career between the Philadelphia A's (1925-35) and Boston Red Sox (1936-42). 8th all-time in home runs and home run percentage, 6th all-time in RBIs and 4th all-time in slugging percentage.

Oscar Gamble - started (1969) and finished (1985) with the Cubs. He also made 7 other stops along the way and smacked an even 200 HRs. One of the all-time best 'Fros too.
