Wiki

LaTroy Hawkins (born December 21, 1972 in Gary, Indiana) is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hawkins was drafted straight out of high school by the Minnesota Twins in the 1991 amateur draft, and spent the next four years in the Twins' minor league system. His major league debut early in the 1995 season was a disastrous start against the Baltimore Orioles, where he gave up seven earned runs in only an inning and two thirds of work. Hawkins bounced between the big league club and Salt Lake of the PCL over the next few years, finally landing in the Twins' bullpen permanently in 1998. He was also the opposing starting pitcher during the perfect game by Yankees pitcher David Wells on May 17, 1998.

Sporting a mid-90s fastball, Hawkins was used by the Twins as their closer during the 2000 and 2001 seasons, but eventually lost the job to Eddie Guardado. In the set-up role, Hawkins drew the attention of the league when he posted a 2.13 ERA in 2002. He fared even better in 2003, when his ERA dropped to 1.86 and he struck out 75 batters in just 77 and 1/3 innings. Hawkins became a free agent after the 2003 season.
