#335 Claudell Washington



Why this card is awesome: Because of pretty great consistency. He may not have been the greatest player, but he had very consistent BA and SLG for a lot of years up to 1987.

Cool stat: Washington had 164 career homers but 2 three-homer games.

If I'm not mistaken, Claudell Washington was the last Yankee to steal Home. And it was versus Clemens and his historic battery-mate Rich Gedman.

Claudell was consistently good and a great athlete. I've always thought of he and Ken Griffey, Sr. as being pretty comparable players (except Claudell doesn't have a HOF son).
