’93 UD #554: Jim Abbott

Snapshot_20130121_3It’s hard enough for a pitcher to hit. Harder still for an AL pitcher, especially one before interleague play. But an American League pitcher with one hand? Well, that’s an all new degree of difficulty.

After nine years in the AL, Abbott went to the Brewers in ’99 for his swan song season. He got his first regular season plate appearances- 24 to be exact. He got 2 hits and 3 RBI; it might not look that good on paper but I think it’s pretty damn impressive.
