82 - Jeff Conine
Back photo: Pick-off attempt.
Better photo?: Neither one is that interesting. A dull draw.
Ties to my personal collections: Was a Met for a small run at the end of the 2007 season, but didn't appear to get any cards out of the deal.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 21
Wiki-facts: "Griffin, his son, plays baseball at Duke University and was drafted by the Marlins in the 31st round of the 2015 MLB draft." That's actually a one-up on dad, who was a 58th rounder.
Google it: Looks like he, along with other Marlins employees, will run in 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents.
How was his stike shortened 1994? Was an all-star, going .319/18/82.
Birthday boy: June 27, 1966. Among the *-reference.com world, only RJ Kors, a former NFL safety was born that date. Also born that date was former Latvian PM Aigars Kalvītis.
Up Next: 83 - Scott Cooper
