#407 Barry Bonds and Joe Carter
About the Front: That face that Barry Bonds is making? I feel like he wore that face for about 78% of his big league career.
About the Back: That .434 OBP seems pretty impressive. It's worth mentioning that Bonds posted a .476 OBP in the second half of 1992, putting him at a league-leading .456 for the year. Incidentally, Barry topped that .456 mark seven times in his superlative career, and had an overall mark of .444.
11-Year-Old Kevin Says: I always thought that Barry Bonds' dangly cross earring looked a bit silly.
On This Date in 1993: April 16. An Earth Day concert at the Hollywood Bowl features Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Steve Miller, and Don Henley.
