59 - Bret Boone

59 - Bret Boone

Front photo: Trying to turn a double play in spring training. Nice cameo, too.

Back photo: Generic fielding photo.

Better photo?: An easy win for the front photo. Even without a special guest.

Ties to my personal collections: None.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 16.

Wiki-facts: "On the last day of the 1998 season, the Reds helped him make baseball trivia history by starting the only infield ever composed of two sets of brothers: first baseman Stephen Larkin, second baseman Bret Boone, shortstop Barry Larkin, and third baseman Aaron Boone."

Google it: If you have 9.5 million around, you can buy his place in California.

How was his stike shortened 1994? He was in Cincy for this season, and batted .320 with 12 HR and 68 RBI.

Birthday boy: April 6, 1969. No other MLB alumni were born that date. In basketball, the late Bison Dele was a 4/6/1969 baby. From the NFL, former Philadelphia Eagle Andy Harmon was born that day. Staying in Philly, Jeff Harding, who played 15 games for the Flyers also matches up.
Outside the sporting world, actor Paul Rudd was also born that date.

Up Next: #60 - Pat Borders
