1989 Topps Major League Debut #31: Gary DiSarcina
PHOTO: What exactly is DiSarcina wearing? Is it my imagination or does he have a blue warmup jacket halfway on, not to mention the stupid grin he's sporting?
STAT: Of his 28 career homers, DiSarcina hit 3 off Boomer Wells and a game-winning 3-run shot off Graeme Lloyd with 2 outs in the 9th inning of a 1996 game.
There's not much to be said about DiSarcina's career. He was an awful offensive player (or should I say "awfully offensive".) He was slightly above average in the field. He never appeared in the post-season, which has as much to do with the Angels as it does with him. But he stuck around for about 8 full seasons and played with just one franchise for his whole career.
