Johnny Damon really turned up the heat in the second half of the season. Before the All-Star break, his batting average was a mere .267, but he wound up finishing the year with an impressive .327. And it wasn't just piddly little base hits he was spraying around. The Royals' MVP hit with power, ringing up 16 dingers, 10 triples, and an amazing 42 doubles to beef his slugging percentage to .498. Our Damon highlight for the year: July 18, when Damon tagged four doubles against the Cubs to tie a major-league record. He went five for six on the night and even played some mean defense when he leapt up and stole a homer from Henry Rodriguez.
