104 - Mike Gallego
Front photo: Diving stop. Or at least an attempt at it.
Back photo: Standing for the anthem.
Better photo?: If he got the ball, the front. If he didn't, the back.
Ties to my personal collections: None.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 8
Wiki-facts: "While playing with the Yankees from 1992 to 1994, Gallego was the last player to wear the uniform number 2 prior to the Yankees' former All-Star shortstop, Derek Jeter"
Google it: The first autocomplete word is 'Angels', the team for which he is now the infield/3rd base coach.
How was his strike shortened 1994? 6 HR and 41 RBI with a .283 average.
Birthday boy: October 31, 1960. No MLB guys, but former NFLers Byron Williams and Richard Tharpe were born that Halloween day. Off in the world of politics, former Puerto Rican governor Luis Fortuño was also born that day.
Up Next: #105 - Carlos Garcia
