Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Reggie Sanders was signed by the Cincinnati Reds and scout Don Mitchell as the 7th Round pick of the 1987 amateur draft. In 1990, while playing for the Cedar Rapids Reds, he batted .285 with 17 home runs and 63 RBI, enough for him to be named Midwest League MVP and the league's top prospect by Baseball America. Sanders is one of only a handful of players in major league history to have compiled 300 stolen bases and 300 home runs in his career, though he just barely achieved both stats himself.

He became eligible for election to the Hall of Fame in 2013 but did not receive any votes and was dropped from the ballot.
