Repack Haiku #345 (Bruce Benedict)

Made big league debut
On his twenty-third birthday
Made two All-Star teams
1986 Fleer #509 Bruce Benedict
Benedict is one only 46 players who have made their Major Legue debut on their birthday. (See the full list here:

Oh, and to all you hopeless romantics: Happy feast of Saint Valentine!

Oh, and Happy 2024 Topps base set release day! (Please let there be some at my local retail store....)


  1. He went one-to-one in his debut. Happy birthday!
