119 - Ricky Gutierrez

Front: A crouching photo that nicely goes with the horizontal design as he appears to be trying to stop an advancing runner.

Back: Throwing the ball across the infield.

Better Side: The front photo is more unique.

Ties to my personal collections: Spent time with the Mets in 2004, but was released in May of that year. He'd finish the season in Boston, and pick up some jewelry in the process.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 9

Wiki-facts: He was also the only Houston Astros player to get a base hit in Kerry Wood's 20-strikeout game.

Google it: Looks like there's some crypto/youtuber with the same name.

How was his strike-shortened 1994? Batted .240 with 1 HR and 28 RBI. He'd be dealt to the Astros as part of the Ken Caminiti deal in December.

Birthday boy:  May 23, 1970. He looks to be the only person in the *-reference land with that birthdate. Wiki does list Bryan Herta, a race car driver, as that date.

Next up: Juan Guzman
