Ron Washington, 1991 Crown/Coca-Cola All-Time Orioles #475
* = What, you don't remember Wash's lofty 26-game stint with the O's in 1987? He was 35 and hit .203 with six RBI in 81 plate appearances. The most notable thing about Ron Washington's time with the Birds? On September 14, 1987, he replaced Cal Ripken, Jr. at shortstop in the eighth inning. Toronto was up 17-3, and manager Cal Ripken, Sr. decided that it was time to end his son's record of 8,243 consecutive innings played. Trivialicious.
