1989 Topps Major League Debut #45: Tommy Greene
PHOTO: This is the cleanest-cut look I have ever seen Greene sport, yet he also looks about 40 years old in this photo, when he was actually about 22.
Greene was a thrown-in in the Dale Murphy trade and was huge for the 1993 Phillies.
STAT: Greene is one of just 9 guys to issue at least 7 walks in a no-hitter.
Greene had one very good year with the Phillies in 1993. It wasn't as good as his 16-4 record indicates and he also pitched poorly in the post-season that year.
The above-mentioned no-hitter was caught by Darren Fletcher, as mentioned by a commenter.
