102 - Darrin Fletcher

Front photo: A catcher confrontation in the dirt.

Back photo: Moment of impact.

Better photo?: It isn't the most flattering photo, as it almost seems like he hit the dirt for a wild pitch, but the front easily wins here.

Ties to my personal collections: He's an Expo here, and a future Blue Jay.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 8.

Wiki-facts: "Fletcher is the son of former major league player, Tom Fletcher, and the grandson of long-time minor league player Glenn Fletcher."

Google it: Looks like he's in the Illinois Fighting Illini Hall of Fame!

How was his strike shortened 1994? Was an All-Star (reserve), batting .260 with 10 HR and 57 RBI.

Birthday boy: October 3, 1966. It is the same date as Scott Taylor, who'd pitch for 3 games with Texas in 1995. In football, former Atlanta Falcon Tony Bowick, who spent 13 years in the Arena League, was also born then. There were no NBA or NHL alum born 10/3/66.

Up Next: #103 - Scott Fletcher
