#37 Ed Romero

Why this card is awesome: Because we know for sure that this photo was taken in spring training, since those are clearly Montreal Expos in the background (and this was well before the days of interleague play.)

Cool stat: National League pitchers were happy to see Romero once he finally joined the senior circuit in 1989 (albeit briefly, in just 7 games with the Braves.) Among American League players from 1980 to 1988 with at least 1500 PAs, only 2 players had a lower SLG than Romero. (try to guess if you like, then click through for the answer.)
