62 - Daryl Boston
Front photo: Swinging.
Back photo: Tracking down a pop-up, with a mysterious teammate losing his cap.
Better photo?: Not really a 1981 John Pacella, but I gotta go with the back image.
Ties to my personal collections: Former Met. Younger brother DJ was a former Blue Jays farmhand.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 5
Wiki-facts: "In 2013, White Sox manager Robin Ventura named Boston the team's first base coach." He's still there.
Google it: The first page contains an article about how he, Vince Coleman and Dwight Gooden avoided rape charges in 1992. Charming. That isn't in his wiki article.
How was his stike shortened 1994? He spent it with the Yankees, hitting 4 HR and 14 RBI with a sub-Mendoza BA of .182. His last MLB season was 1994.
Birthday boy: January 4, 1963. He was the only MLBer born that date. In fact, no alum of the major 4 teams sports was born that date. However, he does share the birthdate with Kids in the Hall/Newsradio's Dave Foley.
