2011 csd Custom – Alan Trammell
Alan was a great shortstop my entire childhood. He has had a couple of chances to manage, but has not found the same success that he did as a player. He is now part of the very good coaching staff in Arizona. Manager Kirk Gibson may not have the most experience managing, but he has surrounded himself with experience. Alan is just part of that equation.
I took this picture in early April as Alan was hitting ground balls to Willie Bloomquist at shortstop. I really liked the shot of the ball in the air just before he started his swing. For some reason I really wanted to put the ’82 Donruss Diamond King on the back. This is the card I most associate with Alan.
