80 - Royce Clayton

80 - Royce Clayton

Front photo: Seems to be staring back in disbelief at a call.

Back photo: Being waved home, but doesn't appear to be in a hurry.

Better photo?: The rear photo is nice that includes the coach waving him home at the side, and that gives it the slight edge over the closely-cropped front pic.

Ties to my personal collections: Played part of the 2007 season in Toronto. Got several photoshop special cards, although his Upper Deck card does look like it is a legit photo of him on the team. He finished that season with a handful of games in Boston, and got a World Series ring out of it.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 7

Wiki-facts: "Clayton portrayed Miguel Tejada in the 2011 film Moneyball"

Google it: Wanna buy his house?

How was his strike shortened 1994? 3 HR and 30 RBI with a .236 average.

Birthday boy:  January 2, 1970. The only person across the *-reference world born that day was 90s NFLer Glenn Cadrez.  Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre was also born that date.

Up Next: 81 - David Cone

  1. Clayton was my electee when I wanted to start a player collection of a guy that played on a lot of different teams....and actually has cards of most of them. He shows up in a lot of traded sets!
