116 - Willie Greene




116 - Willie Greene 

Front photo: A close up at the plate.

Back photo: A casual infield play.

Better photo?: Horizontalness is a tie-breaker for the front.

Ties to my personal collections: Played for the Jays and spent some minor league time with the Expos. Got a Bowman card with the Expos, and a few 1999 cards with Toronto.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 3

Wiki-facts: "Georgia's Gatorade Player of The Year in baseball"

Google it: There's a singer named 'Willie Greene' who sings with the Temptations.

How was his strike shortened 1994? Only 37 AB, with 3 RBI and a .216 BA,

Birthday boy: September 23, 1971. There's a couple former NBAers born that date, Eric Montross and Cuonzo Martin. This is a strange birthdate in terms of *-reference.com matches, as there are those two NBAers, but no NFLers or NHLers. Another 9/23/71 baby was Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary.

Up Next: 117 - Ken Griffey Jr.
