After a decade of stardom with Montreal, Andre Dawson reached new heights with the Cubs. A free-swinging right-handed batter susceptible to being hit by pitches Dawson was a complete player with the Expos, outstanding at bat, in the field, and on the bases. On September 24, 1985, he became the second player in major league history to hit two home runs in an inning twice in a career. After a trade to the Cubs, he turned in an MVP season in 1987, leading the NL with 49 homers and 137 RBI. He was the first player on a last-place team ever to win the MVP. At the end of the 1990 season he stole his 300th base, making him a member of the exclusive 300/300 club. Dawson also played for the Boston Red Sox, and the Florida Marlins before retiring with 2774 hits, 438 home runs, 314 Stolen Bases, and 1591 RBI. He is 29th on the all-time Home Run list, and 28th on the all-time RBI list. Andre Dawson was an 8-time All Star between 1981 and 1991, and won eight Gold Glove Awards as an outfielder in the 1980s.
