Baseball Trivia 040617

Most recognizable as a television analyst with a smooth, buttery voice and easy humor, this utility outfielder/designated hitter/pinch-hitter only appeared in 31 major league games. He had a total of 54 PAs with a slash line of .220/.264/.260. His lone career stolen base came in a game that featured three other future TV analysts, a future first base coach, and future manager (turned analyst). The opposing team that day fielded two Hall of Famers and he arguably had a teammate who should be in the Hall. Despite having a higher Win Probability Added than a teammate with two homers that May evening, he would not be on the team by the time they made the postseason and won their most recent World Series title, the fourth in franchise history. One of his catch phrases in the broadcast booth is “I see ya!” Who is this mystery man?
