109 - Bernard Gilkey


Front photo: Safe at second.

Back photo: Looks like he's on his way to first at Wrigley.
SilverSig Parallel: First time scanning one of these in a bit.

Better photo?: It is hard to vote against the bricks of Wrigley Field.

Ties to my personal collections: Gilkey would go on to play the Mets.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 8

Wiki-facts: Includes a heading Gilkey had a small role in the 1997 film Men in Black (...) Gilkey appeared in his real-life role as a Mets outfielder. Gilkey was distracted by a massive spacecraft above Shea Stadium (...)and was hit on the head by a fly ball.

Google it: He's in the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame.

How was his strike shortened 1994? 6 HR, 45 RBI with a .253 BA.

Birthday boy: September 24, 1966. A busy day for MLB alum, as Chris George and Kevin Koslofski were also born that day. The NBA has Morlon Wiley, while the NFL had Tim Worley and Willie Bouver,

Up Next: 110 - Chris Gomez
