#58 Kirby Puckett

DEPENDABLE : able to be trusted to do or provide what is needed

Look at that smile.

If you saw Puckett in person the first thing you would not think is that this guy is one of the best ballplayers ever.

Hard to believe his career was cut short after 12 years.

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.

1991 AL Rookie of the Year.

4-time AL All-Star (1992, 1994, 1996 & 1997)
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.

POTENT : able to copulate —usually used of the male

Uh, I'm not gonna touch that one.

I will mention however that he once missed at least one game because he fell asleep in a tanning bed and got badly burned.
