Andre “The Hawk” Dawson, the 1977 Rookie of the Year, spent the majority of his career north of the border in Montreal. There, he flashed his power and speed, roaming center field and earning six of his eight Gold Gloves. But the artificial turf in Olympic Stadium took its toll on The Hawk’s knees. In 1987, he was given another chance with the Chicago Cubs where he immediately began paying dividends, earning the NL MVP. Andre Dawson played 21 seasons. He had a productive career, but was it enough to get in to the Hall of Fame?
