Andre Nolan "Hawk" Dawson
Like, Billy Williams, Andre Dawson made his MLB debut at the age of 21. And like Williams He was Rookie of the year. But unlike Williams who debuted with the Cubs, Dawson played his first eleven seasons with the Montreal Expos (Currently: The Washington Nationals). He came to the Cubs in 1987 in spectacular fashion hitting 49 Homers (He never hit more than 32 in a season before or since) and winning the NL MVP for a Cubs team that went 76-85. It' hard to imagine how much worse they would have been w/o him. Dawson played the Outfield for the Cubs from '87 to'92 and had 174 of his 438 MLB homers with the Cubs which puts him 13th all time for the Cubbies.
