Von Francis Hayes (born
August 31, 1958in Stockton, California) was a Major League Baseballplayer from 1981 to 1992 for the Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Phillies, and California Angels. Hayes was originally acquired by the Phillies in a then-controversial and infamous "five-for-one" trade with the Indians in exchange for Manny Trillo, George Vukovich, Jay Baller, Jerry Willard, and Julio Franco.
Hayes enjoyed his most successful campaigns as a Philadelphia Phillie in the late 80's. Hayes finished 8th in MVP voting in 1986, when he led the National League in runs, doubles and extra base hits. He achieved an on-base average over .400 in 1987. In 1989, Hayes made his only appearance on the All Star team, and had career high totals in OPS+ (140) and batting runs (32.4) [ [http://www.baseball-reference.com/h/hayesvo01.shtml] , baseball-reference.com stats] .
There were many rumors during the 1989 season that the
New York Metswere interested in acquiring Hayes in a trade for Lenny Dykstrabut the Mets instead traded Dykstra for Juan Samuel, a move that disappointed Mets fans as Samuel failed to continue his hitting form.
On June 11, 1985, Von Hayes became the first player in MLB history to hit two home runs in the first inning of a baseball game. After leading off the game with a home run off Tom Gorman, he hit a grand slam later that inning off
Calvin Schiraldi. [ [http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/PHI/PHI198506110.shtml Box Score] , Philadelphia vs. New York, June 11, 1985] The Phillies won the game 26-7 over the Mets, at the time the most runs scored in a single game by any Major League team in over 40 years.
Hayes also hit two two-run home runs in a June 8, 1989 game against the
Pittsburgh Piratesat Veterans Stadium. It was in this game that, after the Pirates scored 10 runs in the top of the first inning, Pirate broadcaster Jim Rookersaid on the air, "If we lose this game, I'll walk home." Hayes' two home runs triggered a comeback, the Phillies winning the game 15-11. (After the season, Rooker conducted a charity walk from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh.)
He also was the inspiration for one of
ESPNannouncer Chris Berman's most famous "Bermanisms": Von "Purple" Hayes, a nod to the Jimi Hendrixsong " Purple Haze".
In November 2007, Hayes was named manager of the
Lancaster Barnstormersof the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Hayes' debuted with the South Central Pennsylvania-based franchise in the 2008 season. Hayes has also managed Minor League teams in South Bend, Modesto, and Midland, and was California LeagueManager of the Year in 2004 and Texas LeagueManager of the Year in 2005. He remains an infamous Philadelphia figure, still generating discussion on Phillies fan message boards, and even inspiring an area lo-fi indie rock band called, naturally, Von Hayes. [ [http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=pearlman/080829] , ESPN Page 2 - Pearlman: When baseball and music collide] A shot was named in his honor consisting of goldschlager, blue curacao, and Sprite.
