So Cubs fans around here are happy that Andre "The Hawk" Dawson has finally been elected to the Hall of Fame. But it still hasn't been decided as to whether Dawson's plaque will have a Cubs hat or an Expos hat.
In the past, the Hall of Fame had traditionally deferred to the players' wishes regarding which hat a player was depicted in for his plaque. However, there was a policy change in 2001. Now the Hall of Fame does not consult the player in the matter.
As it turns out, 2003 was the first year an MLB player who had played for multiple teams was forced by the Hall of Fame to wear a hat other than his first choice for the plaque. Can you name this player who wanted to go into the Hall as a Met, but ended up going in donning the cap of another team?
