During his playing days, Hargrove was a career .290 hitter with 80 home runs and 686 RBI in 1666 games. He won both the AL Rookie of the Year and The Sporting News Rookie of the Year awards in 1974, after hitting a career-high .323 with the Rangers (he is the only Ranger ever to be so honored). Afterwards, he made the AL All-Star squad in 1975 and led the league first basemen in assists twice. He also attained the nickname "The Human Rain Delay" for his deliberate routine at the plate before each at-bat and before each pitch. He drove pitchers crazy by stepping out of the batter's box after each pitch and starting his routine, which consisted of (1) adjusting his helmet, (2) adjusting his batting glove, making sure it was tight on his hand and especially the thumb, (3) pulling each sleeve on his uniform up about an inch, and (4) wiping each hand on his uniform pants before finally settling in the box.

Trivia

  • Between high school, college and his major league debut, all five of the teams for which he played (Perryton High, Northwestern Oklahoma State University, Class A, Class AA, and Texas) all shared the same nickname, the Rangers.
  • Hargrove was honored as one of the Cleveland Indians top 100 players in team history.
  • He was inducted in the Kinston Professional Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992.
  • On July 22, 1999, in a game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Hargrove handed in a lineup card which listed Manny Ramirez as the designated hitter and Alex Ramirez as the right fielder. But Manny came out to play right field in the first inning, which got the attention of Toronto manager Jim Fregosi. When Fregosi pointed it out to the umpires, the Indians lost their DH. Consequently, Alex Ramirez was involuntarily removed from the game without having had an at-bat, and pitcher Charles Nagy was forced not only to bat, but to bat 7th in the lineup.[2]
