1989 jeffrey leonard

the seattle mariners signed jeffrey leonard to a free agent contract in december of 1988. here is his 1989 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
leonard had his best power year as a 33-year old in 1989. he hit a career high 24 home runs and drove in a personal best 93 runs while playing in 150 games, the most he had ever played in a single season. he hit only .254 and struck out a career worst 125 times, though. still, chicks dig the long ball, and leonard was named to the all-star team. in the midsummer classic, he struck out against jay howell in his only plate appearance.

leonard hit two home runs in a game against the angels in early august. one of them came in the top of the 10th inning, and proved to be the game-winner.  not sure if he rounded the bases with one flap down.

voici à vous, 1989 jeffrey leonard!
