1989 Topps Major League Debut #28: Jeff Datz
Who Datz? Never heard of him before.
PHOTO: Ho hum photo except for nice Tiger Stadium background. This card is blurry...wonder if it's just my copy.
STAT: Check this out. On the first pitch of his first major-league plate appearance, Datz was hit by Jeff Montgomery. Also odd that both of Datz' career hits were singles in the top of the 9th inning of games his team was losing 9-2. And he also hit into a double play in the top of the 9th inning of a game his team was winning 9-2. Weird.
Just 10 major-league at-bats.
