#107 Fred McGriff

COOL : adjective \ˈkül\
: able to think and act in a calm way : not affected by strong feelings

The epitome of coolness.

Drafted by the Yankees in the 9th round of the 1981 amateur draft.

Dealt by the Yankees with Dave Collins and Mike Morgan to the Toronto Blue Jays for Dale Murray and Tom Dodd. The trade is now considered one of the most one-sided deals in baseball history, and one of the worst in Yankees history.

And the rest is history.

5× All-Star (1992, 1994–1996, 2000)
World Series champion (1995)
3× Silver Slugger Award (1989, 1992, 1993)
MLB All-Star Game MVP (1994)
2× Home run champion (1989, 1992)
