Harold Baines was a professional baseball right fielder and designated hitter, who played in the MLB for the Chicago White Sox. He had three stints as a player with the White Sox, where he also coached from 2004 to 2015, before moving into a role of team ambassador and spring training instructor.
Baines, a Maryland native, played seven years with his hometown team, the Orioles, over three separate stints. Upon his retirement, Baines ranked seventh in American League history in games played (2,830) and tenth in runs batted in (RBI) (1,628). A six-time All-Star, Baines led the AL in slugging percentage in 1984.
In August 2009, the Orioles announced that Baines would be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame as the 46th member. He was later elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Today's Game Era Committee as part of the Class of 2019.
