Andre "The Hawk" Dawson was "Awesome Dawson" when the Chicago Cubs weren't.

Happy birthday to one of my favorite Chicago Cubs, Andre Dawson.

  • 8 Time All-Star
  • Rookie of The Year
  • 1987 MVP
  • Made The Cubs Interesting When They Weren't (O.K. 1989 Was Fine)
  • 2,774 Hits 438 Home Runs, 314 Stolen Bases, and 1,591 RBI
  • MLB HOF 2010

For my "get off my lawn" moment...Andre Dawson wore stirrups. MLB players should ALL wear stirrups. Pants that go down to your shoes, that is not baseball. End rant.
