Hawk Harrelson Superlatives

I got a kick out of this list. White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson is known for declaring players "the best ever" at unusual things. Jim Margalus of SB Nation compiled a list of Hawk Harrelson's superlatives this season.

Here are 122 of them.

My favorites include...

Probably the best in this league at staying with low line drives: Alex Gordon
Running-est pitching staff in baseball: The 1967 White Sox.
Best catcher Hawk ever played against: Bill Freehan
Most flexible body: Tony Fernandez
Best Hawk ever saw in the minor leagues: Joe Moeller
One of the best Hawk has never seen, first baseman holding somebody on, hook it in that hole over there: Omar Vizquel
