Today’s Random Player From The Baseball Project That May Or May Not Amount To Anything is Andy Hawkins. Hawkins got his start in the bigs with the San Diego Padres in 1982. In 1984 he allowed 1 run in 15.2 innings in the postseason for the Padres first National League Championship. After the 1988 season he signed with the Yankees. His “famous” moment came on July 1, 1990. Pitching against the Chicago White Sox Hawkins threw eight innings without giving up a hit. Unfortunately, this was the Yankees of the late 80’s and early 90’s, an overpaid, bloated lineup featuring Steve Balboni, Roberto Kelly, Alvaro Espinoza, Steve Sax and an inexplicably washed up Don Mattingly. They committed three errors in the top of the 8th inning allowing four unearned runs. Hawkins had a no-hitter, but took the loss 4-0.
