GRITTY : having strong qualities of tough uncompromising realism

Just don't let that strong quality cost you the game while you're arguing with the umpire while the ball is still in play.

AL Gold Glove Winner (1997)
2-time AL Silver Slugger Award Winner (1995 & 1997)

Won four World Series with the Minnesota Twins (1991) and the New York Yankees (1998, 1999 & 2000).

Named in the Mitchell Report and later admitted using human growth hormone in 2001.

Knoblauch is the German word for garlic.
