    Quintessential Astroturf player. Had no power to speak of, but could really run. Also not bad at getting on base.

    RIP.

    Played on the '87 Giants, forever a highly regarded team here in NorCal. Didn't he battle substance abuse? RIP.
     
  4. He was a cousin to the Hammer, John Milner (who also did not live very long, comparatively speaking). And yes, Eddie did have cocaine issues.
