Former Tiger great homers in playoff win over Yankees

Travis Hafner, a former All-American baseball player at Cowley College, homered in the Cleveland Indians’ 12-3 win over the New York Yankees in the first game of the American League Division Series played Thursday in Cleveland.

Hafner, who also scored two runs in the win, finished the 2007 regular season with 24 home runs and 100 runs batted in. Hafner has driven in over 100 runs in four consecutive seasons.

The power-hitting designated hitter played at Cowley during the 1996 and 1997 seasons and helped the Tigers to the first of back-to-back national championships. Hafner still holds the school-record for runs batted in in a season (82), runs batted in in a career (161), doubles in a season (21), and doubles in a career (36).

Hafner was inducted into the Tiger Athletic Hall of Fame this past February.
