LaTroy Hawkins takes an unlikely spot in history

Back in the bygone days of my childhood, I was at one point obsessed with collecting baseball cards — boxes and boxes of them were piled under my bed and neatly cataloged in binders. One of my favorite things to do was pore over the massive collection I had amassed, and learn the names and statistics of the youngest players in the league — the rookies. I’m not sure why rookie...
