Will Clark, 1999 Donruss #37

It's Will Clark's 48th birthday...for five more minutes, at least here in the Eastern United States. Since I'm pressed for time, I'll leave you with this fact: On July 20, 2000, Will the Thrill hit home runs in both ends of a doubleheader against Boston. In the first game, his first-inning grand slam off of Ramon Martinez briefly gave the O's a 4-2 lead. (They lost 11-7, because Sidney Ponson was, is, and will forever be the worst.) In the nightcap, Clark gave Baltimore some insurance with a solo shot leading off the fourth inning. That made the score 7-3, and the Birds salvaged a split with a 9-4 final.

The phrase "It's Will Clark's 48th birthday" makes me field old. Watching the World Baseball Classic and seeing Mike Piazza and Larry Walker as coaches also makes me field old. Very, very old.
