doesn't this 1987 fleer all-star insert scream 'star wars'?
saxy was indeed worthy of the selection back then, having matured into a fairly decent offensive second baseman. plus, he was in fact named to the 1986 nl all-star squad - he was 1 for 1 with an rbi and a stolen base against charlie hough, who struck out 3 batters but only recorded two outs thanks to a passed ball on strike 3. here's what fleer had to say in defense (pun intended) of their saxy selection.
still, there's no denying that there was a time when sax threw to first with the precision of an imperial stormtrooper. i mean the ones that couldn't hit the side of a galactic cruiser with their lasers, not the ones that obi-wan refers to when he mentions that 'only imperial stormtroopers are so precise.' based on the way they were depicted in the movie, i really don't think obi-wan knew what he was talking about.
