Travis Hafner was born on Friday, June 3, 1977, in Jamestown, North Dakota. Hafner was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 6, 2002, with the Texas Rangers.

"I was just thinking (when he needed the triple to complete the cycle on August 14, 2003 ), hit the ball hard, get it on the barrel and get it in the gap. You know, see what happens. But I think Torii ( Hunter ) was playing a little over to left-center. It really happened to just work out perfectly." - Travis Hafner on MLB.com (08/15/2003, 'Hafner Cycles', [Seventh Cleveland Indians Cycle ])

How did Travis Hafner became known as Pronk? The January 19, 2007 issue of "Sports Illustrated" (Franz Lidz, Pronk of the Plains) brings the unusual nickname to life:

He became Pronk in 2001, during his first spring training with the Rangers. At the time, Hafner answered to Project (because he was so green) and Donkey (because he circled the bases with the clumsy canter of a jackass).

One day teammate Bill Selby yelled, "Hey Project. What's up, you big donkey?" Hafner bristled: "You can't call me both!" So Selby tried fusing the two handles. "Donkject didn't sound quite right," Hafner says. "But Pronkey..." Pronkey begat El Pronko, which begat Pronk. "I'm at the point where I like it better than Travis," he says. "Everyone calls me Pronk." Well, not everyone. "The truth is, I hardly every call him Pronk," says his mother, Bev. "I prefer Pronkinator."

Did you know that Travis Hafner was only the thirteenth player in American League history (the fifth Cleveland Indian ) to hit five home runs in two consecutive games ( July 19, 2004 / July 20, 2004 )?

Did you know that Travis Hafner appeared in the lineup, as a designated hitter (DH), one-thousand forty-three times? In baseball history, only Chili Davis , Paul Molitor , Don Baylor , Frank Thomas , Hal McRae , Harold Baines , and David Ortiz have more games played as a DH.

Over the past 130+ years of baseball history there have been hundreds of insanely talented sluggers who have put together some amazing seasons. However, there have been exactly two hitters who have hit six grand slams during a single season - Travis Hafner in 2006 and Don Mattingly in 1987 ( Top 500 Single Season Leaders for Grand Slams ).
