#234 Tim McIntosh

About the Front: Tim McIntosh has a catcher's mask and mitt but no helmet, chest protector, or shin guards. I'm guessing that he's just warming up the pitcher between innings while the starting catcher gets his gear on after having batted.

About the Back: Tim went to high school in Minnetonka, eh? I wonder if he's a Prince fan.

Triple Play:

1. He had his only career three-hit game on May 12, 1992, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI against the White Sox in the first game of a doubleheader.

2. McIntosh played in Japan for the Nippon Ham Fighters in 1995, batting .220/.270/.298 with three homers and 15 RBI in 56 games. Any time I get an excuse to mention the Nippon Ham Fighters, you'd better believe I'm seizing the opportunity.

3. Tim has worked as a scout in the Yankees and Rangers organizations.

11-Year-Old Kevin Says: I had a Tim McIntosh "Future Stars" card from 1991 Topps. Swing and a miss!

Bill James Said: "McIntosh is a converted outfielder, an outfielder who didn't quite hit enough to make it that way."

On This Date in 1993: June 16. Michael Jordan torches the Phoenix Suns for 55 points on 21-of-37 shooting as the Bulls take a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals en route to a six-game series victory.
