Kenny Lofton

The real life inspiration (other than the obvious) to Willie Mays Hayes in the movie 'Major League', Kenny Lofton was one of the fastest players to play major league baseball.   His speed in the outfield made him a favorite among his pitchers, and his speed on the bases made him a nightmare for the opposing pitcher.  The 6-time All-Star is best known as a Cleveland Indian, but we wont hold that against him here, he spent a season each in LaLa Land and the City of Fog.
