1987 Topps – Tanner Townsend
Minor League Monday continues with Tanner Townsend. Tanner has spent two stints with the Railcats. He played so well in his first that he was sold to the Florida Marlins. He returned to Gary last season for another go. I will always remember him as the player who the first home run ball I caught. I was just standing in left field along the concourse when he hit one to me. That is still the only home run ball I own.
This picture was taken last season as Tanner was getting a lead off of second base. For some reason I thought that it would fit this card nicely.
