#17T Ray Knight


More words you probably never expected to read on the back of a baseball card: "Then the fun began."


Knight didn't hit more than 2 of his 84 career homers against anybody, except for 4 off of Steve Carlton. Knight's numbers against Carlton were excellent, something that not too many people can say. Of course, Lefty also struck him out 17 times in 87 AB, a pretty nice clip.


All you need to know about Knight at this point in his career is that the card back talks entirely about 1986 despite being issued in 1988. Not much to say about 1987 or anything thereafter.

  1. Too bad they didn't catch Ray in mid swing. I daresay he didn't have enough batspeed left at this point in his career to have generated the "rubber bat" phenomena.
