#553 Tracy Jones
Why this card is awesome: Because like Bob Brower, this shot of Jones shows his knee nearly touching the ground. It gives him a real sense of motion and is an overall very nice photo. I also like his splayed fingers as his lead hand comes off the bat.
I understand that Jones as a radio talent has quite a following these days.
Also I noticed that Jones was traded in three consecutive seasons. Anybody know of other players to whom that has happened?
Cool stat: Jones once had 7 RBI in a game, which itself is pretty good. But he also did it without a single extra base hit. Check out the box score--he had 3 different 2-run singles and then a single RBI single.
Holy crap, I just checked, and that performance by Jones is the only time it's been done since 1956!
