Lenny Dykstra aka Nails

Lenny Dykstra is the leadoff hitter for the New York Mets in the NES version or RBI. Lenny's asset is speed (142), as he's a light left-hander topping out at 768 in the power department. Forget about homers. Dykstra produces best when pulling off the pettis or lefty hit. Overall, he leaves much to be desired, but good hitting technique and baserunning can produce results.
