110 - Chris Gomez

Front photo: Turning two on Tatooine (tm gcrl)

Back photo: A swing and a miss? hit? pop-up?

Better photo?: Easy win for the front photo.

Ties to my personal collections: Spent a year with the Blue Jays in 2004. His only Jays card was in Topps Total.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 10

Wiki-facts: "His first major league hit was a triple on July 22 off Kansas City Royals pitcher Frank DiPino."

Google it: A fairly common name, sharing it with a pitcher for the Pitt Panthers and an MMA fighter coming up on the first page.

How was his strike shortened 1994? 8 HR and 53 RBI with a .257 average.

Birthday boy: June 16, 1971. Another MLBer who would play for the Tigers was born that date - Fernando Hernandez. Gomez would be in San Diego by then. It was also the birthday of 3-game NFLer Andre President. The biggest name was outside the sporting world - Tupac was born that day. John Reith, co-founder of the BBC died that day.

Up Next: 111 - Luis Gonzalez
