1989 Topps Major League Debut #38: Darrin Fletcher
PHOTO: Not a bad photo and I especially like how the background fade from blue to red sort of matches the bleed on the card border from gray to red.
STAT: Fletcher was a starting catcher for 9 seasons, from 1993 to 2001, but was the only guy to have at least 300 but no more than 500 PAs in each of those 9 seasons. He never played enough to get over 500 PAs in any season of his career.
Fletcher was an average offensive player, especially if you ignore the first few years of his career. Not a flashly payer, Fletcher's best year was probably 1999 when he put up 80 RBI.
