871 Major League Home Runs On The Bench

Posted in Baseball at 12:09 am by

A battle of two of the ’90′s most feared slugging icons failed to materialize Monday morning, as both Frank Thomas and Juan Gonzalez sat out the Charlotte Knights/Buffalo Bisons 10:30 am unemployed-persons special.

When was the last time you saw a minor league game where both teams featured a player, rehabbing or otherwise, with such impressive resumes?

In other Triple A news, Round Rock’s Dave Burba hit the first triple of his 15 year professional career during Sunday’s 14-6 defeat of Tucson. Temperatures hit 97 in Arizona that evening, so I’ll presume that Burba declined a jacket while standing at 3rd.
