#14 - Marc Newfield
Back photo: N/A.
Ties to my personal collections: Nothing direct, as he never played for any of the teams I power collect. He was once part of a trade that sent Greg Vaughn from Milwaukee to San Diego. Greg's son Cory, is a prospect in the Mets system.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 3, each at one sentence.
Wiki-facts: He played baseball for Marina High School in Huntington Beach, California.
How was his strike-shortened 1994?: 12 games with 40 AB. Hit .184 with 1 HR and 4 RBI.
Birthday boy: October 19, 1972 is also the birthdate of former big leaguer Keith Foulke. Fromer Buffalo Bill Jason Bratton (1996 was his only season in the NFL) is another one born on the 19th. There do not appear to be any cards of Jason Bratton out there. Outside the sporting world, Pras of The Fugees was also born that date.
Next up: #15 - Luis Ortiz.
