#486 Pat Keedy

Why this card is awesome: Because which reddish object is less welcome? His sensual red lips, or his Michael Jackson-like red gloves?

Cool stat: Keedy hit 3 big-league homers, and they came off good pitchers: Joaquin Andujar, Jeff Russell, and Mark Langston. And they all tied the game or put his team ahead.

Sadly, Pat got an RBI in 1989 that wasn't on a homer. That took him out of the running for most HR in a career where all RBI were on solo homers. Right now, J.R. House has a career of 3 HR, 3 RBI.

Fewest RBI by career HR:
J.R. House 3 HR, 3 RBI (Keedy would be next)
Jim Gott 4 HR, 5 RBI
Dixie Howell 5 HR, 9 RBI
Roric Harrison 6 HR, 12 RBI
Jackie Warner 7 HR, 16 RBI
Greg Pirkl 8 HR, 16 RBI
Dave Staton 9 HR, 15 RBI
Luis Medina 10 HR, 16 RBI

It's hard to beleive this guy was a major league ball player by looking at him... isn't it funny how A LOT of guys were like this before the steroids era? Oh, the good old days...

Jim said...

This guy could be totally made up for all I know, never heard of him and don't temember the card.

On the bright side, at least I got to see Luis Medina's name again!

I've got a story about Luis Medina, whose card is yet to come in this set.

His card says he's 6'4", 225#. Doesn't look it to me. Looks like he ought to be in a John Hughes teen angst movie.
