#43 Dick Schofield
Why this card is awesome: Because Schofield appears to be intently reading the inscription on his bat. I wonder if it says, "Dear Dickie, I used this bat in my entire career and hit just .227, but I'm sure you'll hit much, much better in your career. Love, Dad...P.S. DOH!"
Cool stat: I usually try to point out positive stats on this site, but this negative one is too interesting to pass up. I have nothing against the Schofield family. But check out the list of all players to play at least 600 games at shortstop, have at least 3500 career PAs, and bat .230 or less. Father and son both make the list.
