Notes:
Possibly one of the seven most competitive men on the planet, Clint debuted during the embarassing 1997 season despite never having played anything similar to baseball outside of PE softball. He was quite possibly one of the least hand/eye-coordinated players the league had seen and his stats reflected it. His insane competitiveness would pay off however, as he would tire of being the laughingstock and through sheer determination found a way to be successful. In 1999, he won the Most Improved Player of the Year award thanks to raising his 1998 batting average of .233 to .320. In 2000 he was again a candidate for the award thanks to dropping his 1999 ERA of 4.71 to an absurd 1.69. The rigors of training for an Olympic-level wrestler would sadly not permit Clint to continue playing after his 2001 campaign with the Horsemen, which saw him set numerous personal records in batting as well as proving his pitching was no fluke with another superb season from the mound.

--1999 Most Improved Player of the Year
--2000 Cy Young candidate
--3rd player (of five) to hit the roof (Winterball, 2001)
