57 - Ricky Bones


57 - Ricky Bones

Front photo: Post-game interview? Pre-game interview?

Back photo: Playing with his invisible telescope.

Better photo?: The invisible telescope is rarer than the interview shot. So there's that. Of note, he's the first Brewer I've posted in this set.
Parallel: Silver Signature

Ties to my personal collections: Current bullpen coach for the Mets.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 7

Wiki-facts: His last name is pronounced Bow (as it bow and arrow) ness.. Imagine my disappointment back in the day when I learned it wasn't pronounced like you would in skull & crossbones.

Google it: The 4th result is for something called "Hideous Ballplayer Week".

How was his stike shortened 1994? Went 10-9 with a respectable ERA of 3.43.

Birthday boy: April 7, 1969. In another tie to my PC, original Ottawa Senator Rob Murphy was also born that date. NFL veteran Ricky Watters was born that day as well, as was former Pro-Wrestler Darren Drozdov. Wikipedia also lists April 7, 1969 as the symbolic birthday of the Internet.

Up Next: #58 - Bobby Bonilla
