“Hard Hittin’” Mark Whiten may be best known for blasting four home runs and notching 12 RBI in a single game for the Cardinals in 1993, but he also made the Yankees one of his eight MLB stops in 1997.

Signed as a free agent the previous winter, Whiten hit .265 with 5 home runs and 24 RBI in 69 games with the Yankees before being released on August 15 – the same day as Pete Incaviglia – and would go on to play three more seasons in Cleveland before calling it quits after 2000.

In the end, he finished his 11-year career with a .259 average and just 105 home runs in 3,104 at-bats, totals that seem to make his uniquely-rhythmic nickname somewhat of a misnomer.
