#59 Danny Cox
Why this card is awesome: Because he was born in England, jolly old chap! To date, there have been 33 major-leaguers born in England.
Cool stat: Checking out Cox's main B-R page, you can see that he led the league in anything just once: hit batsmen in 1984. Even then, it was just 7 hit batters, which seems like a low total to me to lead the league. Indeed, if you hit the page for year-by-year leaders in HBP, you can see that 7 is a really low number. The total has been higher in both leagues every year since then. Cox had a pretty interesting career that I am shortchanging with this meaningless stat. Oh well.
