 Biographical Information
"I've never cut a guy hitting that high before. But he was making the rest of us look bad with that average." - quote attributed to Earl Weaver in 1980 when he demoted Drungo Hazewood to the minors although he was hitting .583 in spring training (source: Baseball Digest, Sept. 2000)
Drungo played outfield in the minors, beginning in 1977 at age 19. He showed some power, hitting 97 home runs in seven minor league seasons. His peak was 28 for Charlotte in 1980. He also had some speed, stealing 29 one year for Charlotte and 28 another year.
He returned to Sacramento after his playing career and worked in the trucking business. He had seven children. He died after a long battle with cancer in 2013, aged 53.
A restaurant in Austin, TX named the Drungo Ice House was apparently named in his honor.
