Dykstra rose through the Mets' farm system to become their part-time leadoff hitter and center fielder in 1985, and in 1986 won the larger part of the role, thanks to steady fielding, good speed and flashy, fan-pleasing catches.

In games where Dykstra scored, the Phils were 69-29 -- a large part of the reason the eclectic club (led by the madcap Mitch Williams and the slovenly John Kruk) went from worst to first.
