87. Harold Baines, baseball

He raised his right leg when he batted, as <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT005592" title="Mel Ott" href="/topic/sports/mel-ott-PESPT005592.topic">Mel Ott</a> had -- and Baines wound up with just 10 fewer hits (2,866) than the New York Giants’ Hall of Famer. A native of Easton, Baines played 22 years in the majors -- seven with the Orioles, batting .301 -- and totaled 384 home runs and 1,628 RBIs. The outfielder-designated hitter was a six-time All-Star and is a member of the Orioles' Hall of Fame.
