Major League Baseball players gave us plenty to cheer about in the 80s. First-time achievements and long-standing records being broken fueled the fantasies of little league players like myself to be played out in our backyards. Baseball-Almanac.Com has compiled all those great memories in one place and I've listed just a sampling here. I hope baseball fans will enjoy this look back at our childhood idols and remember why they were so highly revered.
