REMEMBERING MARCUS THAMES' FIRST AT BAT
One of our BYB Hub charter members, Lady at the Bat had a great post about Marcus Thames, the now assistant batting coach to Alan Cockrell. While Thames baseball career wasn't super long, he did have some very good moments with the Yankees and I remember he did pretty well with the Tigers as well.
Anyway, Bernadatte Pasley writes:
"Do you remember Thames' first Major League at-bat? It was as a Yankee, during an interleague game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The pitcher was a future Hall Of Famer: Randy Johnson...
Thames saw everything during that at-bat, and saw a lot during a respectable 10-year career. Greg Bird and other Yankee prospects have a lot of respect for him. Here's hoping he earns it from the Yankees 25-man roster as well."
When I read Lady at the Bat today and saw that post, I just felt the need to share it here on BYB.
