Luis Gonzalez Appreciation Night

Here's betting no one makes too big a deal about Luis Gonzalez, all 6'2" 210lb of him, hitting 57 homers (he hit 31 HRs in 2000, and 28 in 2002) in 2001. However, he can still be appreciated in Arizona tonight before G128 with the Astros.

It was also announced that Gonzalez will be joining the Diamondbacks as a Special Assistant to Arizona President/CEO Derrick Hall.

He is one of only 17 players in Major League history to collect at least 2,500 hits, 500 doubles, 350 home runs and 1,000 RBIs. Thirteen of those players are in the Hall of Fame, and only one of the 17 - Andre Dawson - is eligible for the Hall of Fame, but has not yet been elected.
