#108 Steve Lyons
Why this card is awesome: Because of the mullet!
It's been a long strange trip for Psycho. Read about his broadcasting career here and make up your own mind. The thing I remember most about him was how he often made a tic-tac-toe board in the dirt behind first base, trying to engage the opposing team's first baseman in a game. I remember Don Mattingly once deliberately erasing Lyons' game board in between innings of a game.
Cool stat: Lyons played 3 different stints for the Red Sox, and he was traded just once in his career. Do you know whom for? (hint: it was a Hall of Famer.) Lyons hit 19 career homers and hit multiple homers against one guy: Jose Guzman. And he had one 2-homer game.
