Answer: David Justice

David Justice began his MLB career with the Atlanta Braves in 1989 at 23 years of age. Atlanta drafted him in the 4th round of the 1985 draft. He proved to be a great pick.

In 8 seasons with the Braves, Justice won rookie of the year, appeared in two All-Star games, won a Silver Slugger and most importantly a World Series Championship.

Justice played 817 games for the Braves. Over this stretch, he hit .275 with 160 home runs and 522 runs batted in. He also was not afraid to take a walk as he earned a total of 452 free passes in a Braves uniform.

David Justice is a name that a lot of Braves fans learned to love during the early 90's and with good reason.
