Mickey Morandini played with Sammy Sosa for two years. He does not have a Hall of Fame vote, but if he did it would have Sosa’s name on it.
Mickey Morandini was an old school second baseman who played right in the middle of baseball’s steroid era. He bashed a career-high eight home runs 1998 while playing alongside Sammy Sosa and the Cubs during Sosa’s famous home run chase versus Mark McGwire.
Morandini went about his business the “right way” during a time when baseball was looking the other way when it came to performance-enhancing drugs. The sport is still coming to grips with whether the best players of that era belong in baseball’s Hall of Fame. Morandini says yes.
