Biographical Information[edit]

Terrel Hansen was a "phantom major leaguer." The New York Mets called him up on April 30, 1992 to replace Kevin Baez, who had a broken finger. Hansen was on their roster for two games without appearing. On June 2, 2009, the Kitsap Sun wrote:

"He was going to pinch-hit in one of those two games, but as he grabbed a bat, Mets manager Jeff Torborg decided to let Mackey Sasser hit for himself. Hansen sat back down, and soon he would be sent back down, to Tidewater.

Vince Coleman came off the disabled list and Hansen was gone. In Coleman's first game back, in his first at-bat, he pulled a muscle in his rib cage and went back on the DL. Because of the rule requiring a player sent to the minors to stay there for at least 10 days, Hansen could not be called back, even if he wasn't quite there yet. Another opportunity was wasted, and not by his own doing.

D.J. Dozier, the former Penn State running back, was called up to replace Coleman.

in 1995, he was a replacement player for the Seattle Mariners. He wound up spending the entire season with the AAA Tacoma Rainiers.
