The 1990 World Series between the Oakland Athletics and the Cincinnati Reds was the first one I ever watched from start to finish, so I remember first hand the fact that Billy Hatcher's name kept getting called throughout the four games it took Cincinnati to dispatch the A's.
But you have to see the stats to believe them.
After an impressive NLCS in which he hit .333 with a home run and a double against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Hatcher simply caught fire against the A's.
When the smoke had cleared, Hatcher had gone 9-for-12 in 15 trips to the plate, batting .750 with an .800 on-base percentage.
And, when the A's induced Billy Hatcher into a double play in the top of the first inning of Game 3, it was the first time in the Series that they had retired him.
The A's finally took Hatcher out of the game themselves by plunking him in the top of the first of Game 4. Herm Winningham replaced Hatcher in the order, but by then the damage was done.
It was truly the most amazing postseason performance from a hitter we've ever seen.
