1989 Topps Major League Debut #69: Marcus Lawton
PHOTO: Another close-up non-action shot of a Yankee player in this set...hmm...
STAT: David West faced him twice and struck him out both times. Also check out Lawton's minor league season in 1985. He stole 111 bases...and was caught only 8 times!
ANAGRAM: Marcus Lawton = Macro Walnuts (I can't tell you how tempted I was to go with "A lawn scrotum" but that would just be too unprofessional, even if a better approximation of his major-league career.)
Lawton had speed but couldn't get on base much and never made it in the majors.
