48 - Kim Batiste

48 - Kim Batiste

Front photo: Pop-up on the infield!

Back photo: Ground ball, complete with a cameo from an anonymous base runner.

Better photo?: The front, for both uniqueness of the shot and the Mets logo in the background.

Ties to my personal collections: Nothing direct.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 3

Wiki-facts: "Batiste went on to play in the independent Atlantic League, batting .233 in 12 games in 2003 for the Atlantic City Surf in his final professional season."

Google it: On the first page, there is a video of him going from goat to hero https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK513xQFLFo on the first page of the results, as he went from a throwing error to a walk-off winning hit.

How was his strike-shortened 1994? Went .234 with 1 HR and 13 and RBI over 64 games.

Birthday boy: March 15, 1968. Nobody listed at the *-reference.com was born that date, but he does share it with TV host and singer Mark McGrath.

Up Next: #49 - Rod Beck
