158. Brady Anderson, baseball

No other Oriole hit 50 home runs in one summer, as Anderson did in 1996 for the playoff-bound Birds. In 14 years here, the stylish outfielder played in three All-Star Games and earned a reputation as the best leadoff hitter in club history. A native of Silver Spring, he is one of two players (with <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT000685" title="Barry Bonds" href="/topic/sports/barry-bonds-PESPT000685.topic">Barry Bonds</a>) ever to have both a 50-homer season and a 50-steal season during his career.
