Terry Puhl

Regular
WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW HIM:
In the 1980 NL Championship Series, Puhl broke Pete Rose‘s record for hits in a playoff series, by banging out 10 against the Phillies. He was a quick, slap-hitting outfielder early in his career, but several injuries mid-career sapped him of his speed. A left-handed batter, Puhl was much more effective against right-handed pitching, and later in his years in Houston he platooned with Kevin Bass.
