FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1980'S
#54 DION JAMES
ATLANTA BRAVES 1987-1989
After being acquired from the Brewers by the Braves in 1987, Dion had a career year, hitting 10 home runs and hitting .312. Good games for Dion that year included four different four hit games, though he is probably best known for a routine fly ball he hit at Shea stadium on April 12, 1987 that struck a dove (or was it a pigeon, there still seems to be some controversy there) and killed the poor bird instantly and gave Dion one of the most unusual doubles of all-time.

James came to the plate.
