#458 Ron Hassey

Why this card is awesome: Because this is an unusually relaxed pose for this set. Most guys are either in action shots or actually posed for the camera. Maybe Hassey's going to take some practice cuts in a few minutes, or maybe he's going to hang out on the edge of the cage all day. Who knows?

Cool stat: Hassey hit pretty well against some good pitchers. Minimum 25 plate appearances, he smacked around Chris Bosio, Bert Blyleven, Jack Morris, and others.

One of the slowest runners ever, I laugh at the DH position on his card, you are telling me his manager, thought "hey we gotta get Hassey's bat in the lineup anyway we can!"

Well, his .214 batting average in 1987 tripled that of expected back-up catcher Ron Karkovice.
