How Andre Dawson inspired ex-Expo Derek Aucoin

Derek Aucoin is the only Montreal-born player developed by the Expos to appear with the big league club. I recently caught up with the charismatic ex-pitcher and discovered that a chance meeting with Andre Dawson 30 years ago changed his life.

Here’s the link to the article I wrote about Aucoin for Bob Elliott’s Canadian Baseball Network site:

One thought on “How Andre Dawson inspired ex-Expo Derek Aucoin

  1. What a great attitude this guy has. A lot of today’s so-called big leaguers could learn something from him.

    Thanks for another excellent profile, Kevin.
