Happy Birthday, Kevin Mitchell!

Former San Francisco Giants outfielder, Kevin Mitchell, turned 52 today. Mitchell played for the Giants from 1987-1991 and was the 1989 MPV. Here’s an example of why he was MVP material that particular year. On April 26, 1989, he made a barehanded grab off a hit Ozzie Smith in the left field corner. Sure, it would have went foul, but why let Ozzie have another chance to swing the bat? Mitchell just makes the out with his barehand.
