Not sure if there is any Marlin fans here but this guy was my all time fav Marlin. I hope he gets in the hall of fame wearing our ball cap.

I loved Sheff when he played here, sadly it looks like he was definitely a part of the steroid era. But its hard to hold it against any individuals since it was so common at the time.

whenever I pretend to swing an invisible bat I use Sheffield's batting motion.

+2 Still do it till this day. Remember the commercial about him and billy picking up all his homerun balls ? i think this was back in 1996 0r 1997. He also gave the clubhouse a very emotional speech in game 7 of the 1997 world series.

Him and Niner were my favorite Marlins as a kid, despite (maybe in part because of?) his abrasive personality.
