#783 Ron Roenicke

Why this card is awesome: Because it's a decent shot showing an alternate jersey for the Phillies, plus we get a free half-shot of Greg Gross.

Cool stat: In 1986, Roenicke amassed one of the highest RBI totals for a guy with at most 275 ABs and a .356 SLG. In part, that's because he drew a ton of walks and actually played more than it might seem.

Just for fun, I looked up to see if he had any bases-loaded walks in 1986, and he had two, including a walkoff walk against Ken Howell. That came after they walked STEVE JELTZ.
