1989 Topps Major League Debut #59: Glenallen Hill

Glenallen Hill

PHOTO: This is one of the best photos in the set. It's a nice closeup with a lot going on in the photo, including the dangling bat.

STAT: My instinct is that Hill got a lot of extra-base hits. Checking out all the players with 4000 to 4100 career plate appearances, he was indeed #1. That's sort of unfair, though, because most of those players played in much earlier periods in the game when there was less offense.

CAREER: 4/10

By all accounts, Hill was pretty much an asshole who got dumped by his team quite often in his career. But the guy could hit pretty well, especially for power.

  1. My favorite random Glenallen Hill story: He once tumbled out of bed and crashed into a glass table while having a nightmare about being covered in spiders.
