“The Hawk” could do it all on the ball field. A talented fielder with a howitzer for an arm, Dawson’s power stroke was tailor made for Wrigley Field. During an era of collusion against free agents, Dawson, who couldn’t find a team to sign him, approached the Cubs with a blank contract and told team officials to fill in the amounts. The Cubs gave Dawson a “modest” $500,000 per year and the outfielder rewarded the team with an MVP performance . . . the lone bright spot on a last place team.
