In honor of the new baseball disk being released, this week’s Monster Card Monday edition includes a “card” from the new set.
Baltimore starter Zach Britton’s 2012 APBA card will be pretty dang good but believe it or not, it must have been downgraded. Take a look at his 2012 hitting stats.
He went 5 for 8? With a homerun and a double? Are we that sure this guy is a pitcher? Well in high school, he WAS an all-state outfielder. By the way, there’s a great story on mlb.com about Britton including a bit about how he overcame a serious head injury from hitting a concrete light fixture chasing a foul ball. Seems to be a trooper, this Britton.
Rookie Britton’s 11-11 win-loss record with a 4.61 ERA was enough to get him for a C in the new set. For our purposes though, his hitting card is pretty fun, too. His 1-1-6-6 with four 7s are enough to make me wish the Illowa APBA League didn’t use the Pitcher’s Hitting Card for American League pitchers.
