128 - Billy Hatcher


Front: Dugout pose.

Back: Dancing? 
Silver Sig parallel:

Better side: I don't know quite what he is doing on the back, but it is definitely the more interesting of the two.

Ties to my personal collections: None.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 13

Wiki-facts: Middle name is Augustus. 

Google it: There is a Game Cube game called Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. No relation to the player.

How was his strike-shortened 1994? He'd be traded to the Phillies. Overall, batted .245 with 3 HR and 31 RBI.

Birthday boy:  October 4, 1960. Fellow MLBer Joe Boever was born that date. He was active with Detroit this season, but did not get a card in this, or any other UD release this year. Or next year. He'd get a Collector's Choice card in 1996. It is also the birth date of NFLers Tom Jelesky and Dan McQuaid. The NBA claims Jim Grandholm, and there were no NHLers. Henry Worsley, an explorer who passed away after trying to make a solo crossing of the Antarctic, was also born on that date outside of the *-reference world. In the news, Eastern Air Lines Flight 375 crashed at Logan Airport, killing 62 of the 72 people on board.
