Value of card: A cassette tape of Dee-Lite's "Groove is in the Heart"
Key 1990 stat: 17 cows tipped
He's earned this: Bob Hamelin may look like a big ol' slack-jawed country bumpkin in this photo, but in 1994, he was the American League rookie of the year. (No, really! We didn't remember, either.) Here are a handful of less important yet equally forgotten awards Big Bob has won:
  • Boy Scout of the Month, Troop No. 1399, April 1980
  • Hairiest arms at Buffalo Bill's Tequila Shooter Night, Kansas City, Mo., Aug. 13, 2001
  • Student of the week, Mrs. Evans' third-grade remedial English class, Feb. 3-10, 1974
  • Employee of the month, Beef n' Brawn strip club, November 2000
  • Worst Sophomore Slump, American League, 1995 (.168 batting average)
