Repack Haiku #335 (Tom Bolton)

Cabinet maker
Struck out star Kirby Puckett
For first big league "K"
1991 Fleer #87 Tom Bolton

Bolton, who learned the cabinet-making trade from his father as a teen, made his debut in relief during a game against the Twins on May 17, 1987. Hall of Famer Puckett became his first strikeout victim, and he finished the day giving up an unearned run over two innings.

  1. Looks like Bolton's final strikeout victim in his career was another hall of famer: Jim Thome (on 7/26/94).
