47 - Bret Barberie
Front photo: A nice view of the plate. With all the close crops nowadays with cards, we get a rare appearance of the catcher. And it is PC guy Mike Piazza there.
Back photo: A close up, but one with a really nice view of the Marlins first season patch.
Better photo?: Really close, but I vote for the patch photo on the back.
Ties to my personal collections: Former Montreal Expo.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 7.
Wiki-facts: Bret is the former husband of Jillian Barberie (now known as Jillian Reynolds). Jillian has 9 more paragraphs in her wiki article.
Google it: First video is not of him playing baseball, but from some sort of incident involving a fantasy draft.
How was his strike-shortened 1994? Batted .301 with 5 HR and 31 RBI.
Birthday boy: August 16, 1967. Former football defenders Stacey Hairston and Matt Vanderbeek were born that date. Outside the *-reference world, British TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson was also born on that date.
Up Next: #48 - Kim Batiste
