92 - Delino DeShields

Front photo: Looking casual.

Back photo: Sliding into third, or back to first, safely.

Better photo?: When in doubt, take the more Collector's Choice-ish one of the two. The front.

Ties to my personal collections:  An Expo.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 8 (not counting the list of Highlights)

Wiki-facts: "nicknamed "Bop""

Google it: If you search "Delino DeShields", without specifying Sr or Jr, only 2 of the first 10 results give you this DeShields.

How was his strike shortened 1994? He was traded to Los Angeles (for some guy named Pedro Martinez) and batted .250 with 2 HR and 33 RBI.

Birthday boy: January 15, 1969. A couple former NFLers, Leonard Wheeler and Chris Thome were also born on 1/15/69, along with NHLer Adam Burt.

The Soviet Union launched Soyuz 5 on that date as well.
