Rance Mulliniks: I Witnessed His Last Hit
I'm featuring 1988 Topps Cards featuring members of my beloved Blue Jays that are featured on this blog.
Rance Mulliniks was one half of our legendary platoon at third base. He shared the duties with Garth Iorg for most of the 80s before Kelly Gruber took over.
Rance was a fan favourite because he didn't look like an athlete. Nobody accused Rance of juicing, unless he was juicing that killer moustache. He was a skinny guy without much power, but he was consistent.
My brother Steve and I were in the stands the day Rance recorded his last major league hit in 1992. We didn't know it at the time, as there was a good chunk of the season remaining, but it ended up being so and now I can drag out this story every time somebody mentions Rance Mulliniks.
