Tim Spehr

Timothy Joseph Spehr
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 200 lbs.
Born: July 2, 1966 in Excelsior Springs, MO
Drafted: 5th round 1988 by the Kansas City Royals
Acquired: as a free agent, January 1998
Departed: purchased by the Royals, August 1998

 

In an eight-year career as a backup catcher, Tim accumulated about one full season's worth of at-bats, and hit with good power, totaling 19 home runs. Even more surprising, he was never caught stealing in nine attempts in his career. Now, if he could've done something about that .198 batting average…. He's shown here during his short tenure with the Mets on 1998 Pacific Online Red; he was actually the Mets' Opening Day backstop in '98. Three more cards are shown below.
