Greg Litton, Best Asset – 20

on October 23rd, 2014 by Steve78

Greg Litton hit a home run for his Giants in this 1992 game, but he knew that wasn’t his game, according to The Associated Press.

Defense was his game.

“But I pride myself on being able to hit,” Litton told The AP afterward. “I think I’ve been trying too hard. I’ve never been a home run hitter. I have some power, but that’s not my best asset.”

Litton hit that home run in his fourth major league season. He ended up getting time in two more, 374 total big league games in all. He hit 13 big league home runs.

Litton’s career began in 1984, taken by the Giants in the first round of the January draft out of Pensacola Junior College in Florida.

Litton started with the Giants at short-season Everett. He hit .235 in 62 games. He moved to single-A Fresno in 1985, then AA Shreveport in 1986. He hit .246 there.

Litton then split 1987 between Shreveport and AAA Phoenix and played 1988 back at Shreveport. He started 1989 at Phoenix. That May, he made the majors.

With San Francisco in 1989, Litton got into 71 games. He hit .252 with four home runs. He hit his second home run in a July game off the Cardinals’ Frank DiPino.

That October, the rookie also got to play in the World Series. He went 3 for 6.

Litton returned to the Giants for another 93 games in 1990. He hit .245 while knocking in 24. In August, Litton helped the Giants to a win with a tie-breaking double, avoiding a sweep.

“We all knew we needed the win to avoid the sweep,” Litton told The AP after that game. “But you can’t think of all that when you’re at the plate. That’s one of the big reasons we’ve had the success we’ve had is that we don’t think about the past.”

Litton continued with the Giants for two more seasons, getting into 59 games in 1991 and 68 in 1992.

He then moved to the Mariners for 72 games in 1993, hitting .299. He rounded out his big league career with 11 games in Boston in 1994.

He then played one more season at AAA in 1995, ending his professional career.

Years after his playing career ended, Litton recalled to a Pensacola magazine how he got his start in the game in high school, after failing to make the school’s baseball team as a freshman.

“My dream was always to play major league baseball, and I learned real quick that I was going to have to earn it. It wasn’t going to come easy,” Litton told the magazine InWeekly years later. “If I wanted it, I was going to have to start lifting weights, I was going to have to start running, and working at it, and that’s what I did.”

1990 CMC-Pro Cards Tally
Players/Coaches Featured:1,782
Made the Majors: 838 – 47.0%-X
Never Made Majors: 944-53.0%
5+ Seasons in the Majors: 361-X
10+ Seasons in the Minors:212

Happy 36th John Lackey!

on October 23rd, 2014 by Section 36
The Red Sox have had several players over the years that have had their relationships with the fans change over the years. An overpaid slug can become a hero with one game six grand slam. An icon can become an outcast after some well-place propaganda. It’s nothing new. But, I’m not sure any player was on quite the roller coaster of John Lackey.
When he was signed, he was seen if not an ace, at least a top addition to the rotation. His first season was pretty mediocre. It was definitely an underwhelming year. The next one was even worse, as he might have been the worst starter ever, statistically speaking. Then, it turned out he was hurt, so suddenly there was a bit more sympathy for the numbers. Then he came back and was the ace of a World Series winner. From adoration to hate to legend. What a ride.

It looks like I was at Fenway for seven Lackey games during his Red Sox career. A couple of them stand out above the others, as I’m sure you can imagine. Specifically two October games.

I had the pleasure of being at the ALDS Game 2 last year when Lackey took on David Price. Lackey pitched well as the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the series.

But that’s not my favorite Lackey start.

If you’re looking for a peak in the roller coaster that was Lackey’s time in Boston, look no further than Game 6 of the 2013 World Series. I was in the stands as Lackey made our dreams come true. He was everything you wanted from a starter in that situation. He even convinced John Farrell to leave him in the game at one point. When he walked off the field to a loud standing ovation, the transformation was complete. I always said I was amazed that JD Drew gave us a curtain call after his 2007 grand slam. If I were him, I would have told the fans to stuff it. The same definitely was true with Lackey. His tip of the cap as he walked off the field was something I’m not sure I could have done. I’m not sure we deserved it. He certainly deserved the ovation, though. He deserves one every time we see him from now on.

A birthday wish is the least we can do.

Happy 36th John Lackey!
