1989 Topps Major League Debut #56: Eric Hetzel
PHOTO: I really like this photo because of the extreme upward angle, yet the photographer managed to keep some stuff on the ground in frame in the background. Fluffy white clouds are nice.
STAT: Like many pitchers, Hetzel walked too many batters, including Wally Joyner 5 times in 8 career plate appearances.
Hetzel was so flexible during pre-game stretching that he was nicknamed "Hetzel the Pretzel."
OK, I just made that up.
21 career games and an ERA+ of 67.
