Miguel Tejada, 2005 Topps Updates and Highlights #UH179
Manny Machado made quite a good showing for himself tonight in the Home Run Derby, blasting a dozen home runs in the first round. Unfortunately, he drew a bad seed, as Dodgers rookie Joc Pederson beat him out by smashing 13. So even though Manny had the fourth-most homers in the round of eight, he was one-and-done. But he did hit a handful of home runs over 450 feet, so he can hold his head high. But for the time being, Miguel Tejada is still the reigning Home Run Derby champion for the Orioles franchise, having taken the crown in Houston in 2004. There's always next year.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
