Ken Caminiti – 1996 National League MVP

Ken Caminiti was a three time Gold Glove Third Baseman with a career fielding percentage of .946 at the hot corner. Ten of his 15 years in major league baseball were played with the Houston Astros where he recorded a 5.3 career Defensive WAR, 6th all time among Astros position players. His 546 RBI’s as an Astro place him 9th all time in team history, his 204 doubles puts him at 10th, and his 659 strikeouts is 8th most in Astro history.

Caminiti’s three consecutive Gold Gloves are tarnished by the use of performance enhancing drugs. Caminiti is ranked among the top 25 steroid users in MLB history. To his credit, he was also the first MLB player to admit to using PEDs in a Sports Illustrated article with Tom Verducci. Sadly, drug and alcohol abuse contributed to a 2004 fatal heart attack at just 41 years of age.

Willie McGee, National League Batting Title Winner, National League MVP

1985 was a career year for Willie McGee. He won the National League Most Valuable Player Award, the National League batting title (.353), led the league in hits (216), and triples (18). He also stole 56 bases, won a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger, and led the St. Louis Cardinals to a classic edition of the World Series vs. cross-state rivals, the Kansas City Royals. McGee also won the National League batting title in 1990 despite being traded to the Oakland A’s on August 29 and seeing his average drop by 61 percentage points for the rest of the season.
