1989 Topps Major League Debut #136: Lenny Webster
PHOTO: As with a number of cards in this set, this is another nice perspective shot where we can see all the way from the grass to the clouds behind Webster. I just wish it were less overexposed and more in focus.
STAT: Nearly a third of Webster's 33 career homers came on the second pitch of the at-bat.
ANAGRAM: Lenny Webster, Twins = Blew twenty sinners
Webster was a pretty good backup catcher for a bunch of years and was a starter in one year (1998 with the Orioles.) He had a number of productive years with the bat, especially as a backup catcher.
