1989 Topps Major League Debut #67: Matt Kinzer

Matt Kinzer

PHOTO: I love, love, love, photos that show the ball mid-flight. I don't know if Kinzer was a heavy guy or not, but this photo certainly wasn't very flattering.

STAT: Kinzer pitched for the Cardinals and Tigers but may be best remembered by Phillies fans due to this meaningless late-season game in 1989 where he served up a walk-off grand-slam gopher ball to John Kruk in the 12 inning.

CAREER: 1/10

This poor guy pitched 15 innings in the majors and gave up 22 earned runs.

  1. at 6'2" 210 lbs., he doesn't list heavy, but then again, they listed Cecil Fielder at 240 lbs. for years, so anything is possible.
