mike schmidt, leader

here we find the hall of fame third baseman swinging for the fences in dodger stadium on a 1989 topps card. that's mike scioscia not catching the ball. i like this card, even though that may not be a can of corn to left center. schmidt obviously had a powerful swing, and it is captured here in its glory.

schmidt was in the news recently - quoted regarding the alex rodriguez show. i thought he was pretty honest and reasonable in his discourse. the thing i found most interesting is that he said he would "welcome" rodriguez if he were voted into the hall of fame. he didn't say he would support him. big difference.
