35 - Moises Alou
Back photo: Standard at the plate photo, but it is enhanced by the Wrigley bricks.
Better photo?: It is an easy win for the photo on the front. The only way this could be any better is if the photographer was visible in it.
Ties to my personal collections: Is an Expo and a future Met.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 17.
Wiki-facts: "Moises Alou revealed that during baseball season he urinates on his hands to toughen them up." There is nothing I could say that would enhance that sentence, so I'll leave it there in all its glory.
Google it: It isn't until the 10th entry that anything Steve Bartman related comes up, although that is #1 when you search for video. #3 is a nasty injury on the turf at Busch Stadium.
How was his strike-shortened 1994? Really good. Picked up a Silver Slugger and was an all-star as well as he hit .339 with 14 HR and 58 RBI.
Birthday boy: July 3, 1966. In another tie to my PC, former Ottawa Senator Jarmo Kekalainen was also born that date. Neil O'Donnell, who played for 13 seasons in the NFL is another 7/3/66 baby.
Up Next: 36 - Wilson Alvarez.
