Answer: Terry Mulholland

Terry Mulholland would also fit in a "Thrice a Giant" and "Twice a Cub" quiz. He's also played for the Yankees, Mariners, Pirates, Dodgers, Braves, Indians, and Twins. He almost defines the term, "well traveled left-hander." Dennis Cook was not on the 1993 Phillies, Curt Schilling is right-handed, and Mitch Williams was a relief pitcher.

Answer: Larry Andersen

Larry Andersen finished his career at 40-39 with a 3.15 ERA. After he retired, he coached in the Phillies minor league system and replaced the late Rich Ashburn in the broadcast booth in 1998, a natural place for a real funny guy. Al Holland was the closer on the 1983 Phillies and Mitch Williams was the closer on the 1993 Philllies.

Heathcliff Slocumb pitched for the Phillies in 1994 and 1995, and was the winning pitcher in the 1995 All-Star game.

After retiring in 1996, he became a coach, the first in the Devil Rays' organization and then in the Phillies organization, becoming the Phillies hitting coach in 2004.

Answer: Milt Thompson

Atlanta drafted Milt Thomspon out of Howard University in the second round of the 1979 draft and he retired with a .274 batting average and 37 triples. Von Hayes led the NL in doubles (46), extra base hits (67) and runs (107) in 1986, an All-Star in 1989, but is remembered mainly for coming to Philadelphia as the 'one' in a 5-for-1 trade (the 'five' included Julio Franco).
