1989 Topps Major League Debut #10: Kevin Batiste

Kevin Batiste

PHOTO: This is a very strange staged over-the-shoulder shot. Given that Batiste had 8 major-league at-bats, I wonder if this is from the media guide.

STAT: Well the guy only had two hits in the big leagues, one off Mark Knudson and one off Chuck Finley. He had five strikeouts, though.

CAREER: 1/10

I can't give him a zero because he did actually appear in the majors. But he's as close to a zero as you can get. Don't confuse this guy with Kim Batiste, no relation, an awful player in his own right who did appear in the postseason with the 1993 Phillies and even got a big hit for them.

  1. As a Toronto fan, it is funny to note for all readers that in double a, Kevin was arrested for gun possession at an airport. Times sure have changed.
