#12 - Miguel Jimenez
Back photo: N/A.
Ties to my personal collections: None, but was born the same date as former Met Matt Franco.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 2
Wiki-facts: I'll just make it a direct quote from one of the two paragraphs. "Currently Miguel Jimenez is the commissioner for the Bring Your Game Fantasy Baseball League. The league is a pretigeous (sic) fantasy baseball league based out of Arizona. He is the manager/owner of the Bangers in said league. He currently holds two championships for said league.". And this is the first wiki fact so far that might have been added by the player himself. And yes, prestigious was spelled wrong.
Searching deeper: Googling his name, with quotes, is more likely to bring up golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez. I had to go 4 pages deep in order to find this one, which also included a "Did I get his name right?" moment.
How was his strike-shortened 1994?: Went 1-4 with a 7.41 ERA. Never played in the majors after that.
Birthday boy: Born August 19, 1969. As said earlier, former Met Matt Franco was also born that date. Nobody else from the big 4 team sports, but actor Matthew Perry, rapper Nate Dogg and sportscaster Kirk Herbstreit (who was in the A&G 2012 set) were all born that date. Also, Ken Holtzman no-hit Atlanta on that date.
Next up: #13 - Steve Karsay.
