#308 Lee Mazzilli
Why this card is awesome: Because of the the nice shot of the spring training stadium in the background. I could research it, but I'll take the lazy way out: who knows what stadium that is?
Cool stat: In his later playing years, Mazzilli was best known as a pinch-hitter. From his B-R.com splits, you can get his full line as a pinch hitter: just a .224 hitter, with 74 hits in 330 AB, but he had 52 RBI in those ABs, a far better rate than in his non pinch-hitting appearances.
This set seems to be loaded with future managers (as I guess most sets are) and he is another.
