On December 9th, 1982 the Phillies traded 2B Manny Trillo, SS Julio Franco, C Jerry Willard, OF George Vukovich and relief pitcher Jay Baller to the Cleveland Indians for lefty swinging 1B/OF Von Hayes. He became known around Philly as Mr. 5 for 1. Hayes best season for the Phillies came back in 1986. He played in 158 games in 1986 and he was 186 for 610 (.305 avg, .859 OPS) with 107 runs scored, 19 homers, 98 RBIs and 24 stolen bases. Hayes led the league in runs scored (107) and doubles (46) in 1986. He also was 8th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award. Hayes played in 1,208 games for the Phillies in his 9 years with them and he was 1,173 of 4,306 (.272 avg, .789 OPS) with 646 runs scored, 124 homers, 568 RBIs and 202 stolen bases. Hayes is #10 in Phillies’ history in stolen bases with 202 and he is also #8 in walks with 619. Hayes wasn’t too bad of a player for the Phillies, but he was nowhere near as good as Julio Franco turned out to be.
