You may know him as the San Diego Padres’ hitting coach, but he is also the player who holds the MLB record for most home runs hit by a pinch hitter with 23.
The man was never an All-Star or the face of any franchise, but he was CLUTCH. He sports a World Series ring from his time in Philadelphia, when he was most known for his pinch hit in the eighth inning of Game 4 against the Dodgers, one of the most memorable home runs in Phillies history.
Stairs retired as a player in 2011 after a short stint with the Washington Nationals and is 50 years old now. But in case anyone was wondering, the man can still RAKE.
