66 - Steve Buechele
Front photo: Throwing the ball.
Back photo: A chat along the wire fence
Better photo?: Hard to go against any appearance of the Wrigley ivy.
Ties to my personal collections: None.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 7
Wiki-facts: "At Stanford, his roommate was Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway."
Google it: 5 of the 10 results on the first page have to do with his son playing QB for the Texas Longhorns. Shane was the first freshman to start at QB for Texas since 1944.
How was his stike shortened 1994? Went .242 with 14 HR and 52 RBI.
Birthday boy: September 26, 1961. No MLB alum were born that date. Ditto for the NBA and the NHL. The NFL does offer a pair of players, "wild" Wes Hopkins, who spent 11 years with the Eagles, and Mark Behning, who spent a season in Pittsburgh. Cindy Herron, of the singing group "En Vogue" was also born that day.
