One of the jolliest players in Twins franchise history, Matt LeCroy has the dubious distinction as the player with the most career at-bats without a stolen base.
Used as a part-time C/DH/1B, it was always a treat to see LeCroy in the game, as he only played in 100 games twice during his career.
LeCroy's best year as a Twin was 2003, when he hit .287 with 17 home runs and 64 RBI.
LeCroy signed with the Washington Nationals in 2006. His most memorable moment as a Nat came in a game against the Houston Astros with LeCroy as the starting catcher. Houston stole six bases, and LeCroy had two catching errors.
Manager Frank Robinson, who shed tears for LeCroy while talking about him at the press conference, pulled LeCroy in the middle of the seventh inning. The Nats won the game 8-5.
The Nats sent LeCroy to the minors and after the season offered him a minor league manager position. LeCroy declined, citing he could still play.
He re-signed with the Twins in 2007 and spent most of the year at AAA-Rochester.
LeCroy signed with Oakland in 2008, but when he was sent to the minors, he asked for his release. He spent 2008 with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League.
He now manages the Hagerstown Suns, a class-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.
