Here at WSBGM's, we have a strange obsession with the a player of 8 MLB seasons that had a lower OPS than Carlos Zambrano (.572 to .578). We are willing to admit that Steve Jeltz really never did much of note in his career, yet we still give his name and picture a plug on this site every chance we get.
Prepare to be Jeltzed...
*Larry Steven Jeltz was born in Paris, France (damn French!) on the date of May 28, 1959. As mentioned above, he played 8 MLB seasons, mostly for the Phils, but also the lowly Royals in '90.
*Steve Jeltz owns a career batting average of .210, kids from St. Jude's Hospital could bat higher than that, then again No-Hit Nunez is about his equal. Jeltz was still a fan favorite despite paltry offensive numbers, as fans loved his slick defensive play and even slicker jheri curl hairstyle.
*Jeltz managed to power out 5 homeruns during his tenure in the Bigs, with two of those round-trippers coming in one game. The game was against our State buddies the Pirates, and Jeltz didn't even start the game. He came in as a pinch-hitter and ended up smacking homers from each side of the plate while the Phils went on to win the game and Pirate announcer Jim Rooker ended up walking home from Philly to Pitt because of a regrettable utterance he said on air, "If we (the Pirates) lose this game, I'll walk home." Phils won 15-11. Hope you had a comfortable pair of Nikes.
Consider yourself Jeltzed. Feels warm and tingly doesn't it?
Update: I want this tribute to Steve Jeltz done the right way, so here's the pictures I originally posted too.
