647th Place - Donnie Hill

Card #132

The other Donnie Baseball.

Talk about your quintessential mid-to-late eighties baseball look...Mr. Hill has it all.  Over-sized glasses, long hair, scruffy face, thin chain.  Donnie is ready to play!

Hill came to the White Sox from the A's, in a trade that sent Gene Nelson to Oakland.  Nelson would become a key member of the Oakland bullpen during their three straight World Series appearances.

According to Wikipedia, Donnie was a member of the Arizona State University team that won the college world series in 1981.  That same link claims Donnie is now a golf pro at Strawberry Farms Golf Course in Orange County. When you poke around the site you learn Doug DeCinces designed the course. Hill now goes by "Don," if you'd like to arrange a lesson with him.
