153. Rick Dempsey, baseball

The Most Valuable Player of the 1983 World Series, when he hit .385 — more than 150 points above his career mark — Dempsey epitomized blue-collar Baltimore. A gritty defensive standout, he caught more games (1,230) than anyone else in Orioles history and twice led American League catchers in fielding. His signature move (to the fans' delight): running the bases, a la Babe Ruth, during rain delays.
