Jim Deshaies?

His face looks very familiar, but I'm not sure who it is.

Bob D said...

A member of the Phillies grounds crew from 1988, who assisted the team in obtaining a 6th place finish with a 65-96 record.

This quite possibly is the toughest Name That Player yet. Corey told me the answer and I didn't even know the dude.

Preserve Jon said...

Would that be Tom Niedenfur

Preserve Jon said...

or perhaps Darrel Ackerfelds (is hedging allowed?)

Utility Derek said...

ken ryan?

GM-Carson said...

No, uh-uh, and nope.

Caleb said...

Isn't that Chuck Ricci?
Caleb

GM-Carson said...

This indeed is Chuck Ricci, who only spent a short time in the Majors in 1995 and had a sparkling sub-2 ERA.

How did you know that Caleb?

I've made a list of Phillies from the 80s and 90s rosters of obscure players whose faces I would NOT recognize. From this picture, I guessed somewhere between 1994-1997, which narrowed down my list of strangers. It didn't take long after that.
