10. Kevin Maas
Mass experienced the New York media hysteria 22 years before Jeremy Lin did. A 22nd round draft pick in 1986, Maas was called up to the Yankees in late June of 1990 as a 25 year-old. The first baseman instantly exploded. Maas set a major league record for fewest at-bats to reach 10 home runs (72) and finished his season with 21 home runs in just 79 games. THE YANKEES HAD FOUND THEIR NEW BABE RUTH!
Nope. More like their new Steve Balboni.
In 1991 in a full season Maas hit just 23 home runs and batted .220. By 1995 his major league career was over, finishing with one home run and a .193 average as a member of the Minnesota Twins.
Where is he now?: Maas works as a financial consultant in California and regularly returns to Yankee Stadium for Old-Timers' games, where he is no doubt forced to sit on the bench.
