PHOTO: Anybody familiar with McElroy will immediately know what's notable about this photo...McElroy's not wearing his glasses! I can't recall ever seeing him without glasses on, although a quick web search shows at least one other baseball card where he's not wearing them.
STAT: Six guys hit a pair of homers off McElroy but one of them is not like the others. One of them just doesn't belong. That would be Marty Cardova, who is not quite in the class of McGriff, Griffey, Justice, Sosa, and Bonds.
