#8 - Alex Gonzalez

Front photo: Might be an in-game shot, might be a spring training shot. Don't really know. Toronto is the first team to appear more than once in this set.

Back photo: N/A..

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 7

Wiki-facts: Appeared on an episode of The Newsroom. Not the HBO one - the one that was on CBC in the 90s.Is one of 3 Alex Gonzalezes at wiki, the others being the one that started with the Marlins, and the other being a Rangers prospect. The Rangers guy only has a paragraph under Texas Rangers minor leaguers.

How was his strike-shortened 1994?: Made his big league debut, batting .151 over 15 games. Would have to wait until 1995 for his first HR.

Birthday boy: Born April 8, 1973. Also born on that day was actress Emma Caulfield of Buffy The Vampire Slayer fame. Pablo Picasso died on that date. Nobody else at any of the other *-reference sites was born on that date.

Ties to my Personal Collections: Would play in Montreal as well as the Blue Jays.

Next up: #8 - Shawn Green
