"Are you sure this isn't one of your fantasy mock up cards? Next you're going to show us the 2003 Mark Bellhorn bat card, right?"
The Cubs had alot of those types of guys passing through the infield throughout the 2000s....Bill Mueller, Mark Bellhorn, Jeff Baker, Mark DeRosa. Todd Walker, and today's guy...
The back of the card makes note of the fact that Grudzielanek was 10th in the NL in hitting in 2003 with a .314 average. In fact, other than Kenny Lofton's .327 average in 56 games, Grudzielanek was the Cubs top hitter. I never would have guessed that. He tanked in the post-season, though, hitting only .181.
Here's a fun fact from the media guide: when Grudzielanek joined the Cubs for the 2003 season, he was the first player with 12 letters in his last name on the team since 1983 (Alan Hargesheimer).
That's three relics down and one to go...Hackenbush...got a guess??
