26 - Kirk Presley
Back photo: Generic posed pitching photo.
Better photo?: Not even close. Stadium for the win!
Ties to my personal collections: Is pictured as a Met. I have another card of his in my Mets binder that says was third cousin to Elvis.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: N/A. Doesn't have one. Did have an article in People though. That's probably the first for someone from this set.
Wiki-facts: Again, N/A.
Google it: There's a lawyer in Kansas City named Kirk Presley whose name pops up as well in google searches. Not the same guy, unfortunately.
How was his strike-shortened 1994? Spent time at Pittsfield and St. Lucie. Went 6-7 with an ERA of 3.83 in 16 appearances, all starts.
Birthday boy: April 17, 1975. Nobody at any of the *-reference.com sites has that exact birthday. But, he does match up with a Travis Roy, hockey player who was sadly left a quadriplegic 10 seconds into his first shift at Boston University.
Yegads this is a depressing card.
OK. British politician Heidi Alexander was also born that date. She's still in office, so maybe that counts for something.
Up next: 27 - Matt Brunson.
