679th Place - Tim Crews

Card #57

There's a weird glitch with this baseball card.  The photo editor didn't do a good job of setting the "G" in Dodgers completely behind Tim's head, leading to some pink spilling onto his cap.

I'm just stalling, though, because I don't want to write about the tragic death of Tim Crews.  As most of you reading this will remember, Tim Crews and Steve Olin, teammates on the Cleveland Indians, died in a boating accident that also severely injured Bob Ojeda.
The accident was all the more tragic, and frustrating, because Crews was operating the boat under the influence of alcohol.

Here's a great article catching up with Crews and Olin's families, twenty years after their loss.
