Seattle Pilots CTNW Fan Favorites #1
I'm putting together 5 "Cards That Never Were" fan favorites from each team. These are not necessarily the 5 best players from the franchise. So as David Letterman used to say before Stupid Pet Tricks, "This is only an exhibition. This is not a competition. Please, no wagering."
Mike Hegan was the only Pilot selected to the All Star team. However he couyld not play due to an injury and was replaced by first baseman Don Mincher. Hegan also has the distinction of hitting the first homerun for the Pilots. In his 1969 season with the Pilots he hit .292 a full 50 points higher than his career average.
