Juan Alberto González Vázquez (born October 20, 1969), is a former Major League Baseball right fielder. A full-time player at the age of 21 and a two-time MVP before his 30th birthday, González explained his propensity for bringing runners home simply by saying, "I concentrate more when I see men on base." One of the premier run producers and most feared hitters of the 1990s, González averaged 37 HR and 117 runs batted in per season from 1991 to 1999. He won the AL MVP award twice in that time span, 1996 and 1998. Gonzalez was known as a screaming line drive hitter, not a majestic fly-ball hitter as were many power hitters of the 1990s.
