 Biographical Information
Mack had a nine-year major league career with a lifetime batting average of .299. He was one of the best-ever UCLA baseball players, a member of the 1984 Olympic squad, a first-round draft pick by the San Diego Padres, a member of the 1991 World Series champion Minnesota Twins, and also played for the Yomiuri Giants in Japan before coming back and finishing out his career in the USA.
When he was a big star at UCLA in 1984, across town at rival USC the star was Mark McGwire. There was speculation as to which one would be picked # 1 in the draft, but the New York Mets took Shawn Abner instead of either of them.
Mack hit over .300 five times in his career, was in the top ten in the league in batting average twice in his career, and was also in the top ten in the league in slugging percentage twice.
The 1994 strike cut short his best year, as he posted .333/.402/.564.
One website ranks him # 24 all time among Twins players.
