693rd Place - Glenn Wilson

Card #626

Batting glove in the back pocket...bare-handed swing of the bat.  Interesting.

As a kid I had a strange fascination with Glenn Wilson.  He was an outfielder who tended to play every day despite not appearing to be particularly memorable in any facet of the game.  I mean that as no disrespect to Mr. Wilson, who is obviously an accomplished athlete.  He just seems to have the pedigree of a fourth outfielder type. 

It looks like he popped out to right field in this shot.  I'm guessing it's a spring training game at the Expos' ballpark based on the background.

Does anyone know if his gas station is still around?
