Swings and misses

1992 Fleer

In 11 big league seasons Mark Whiten hit .259 with 105 home runs. Whiten played from 1990-2000 and made appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays, Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees. His best year came in 1993 while playing for the Cardinals. He hit .253 that season and set career highs in home runs (25), RBIs (99) and runs scored (81). He also stole 15 bases. Whiten is perhaps best remembered for belting four home runs for the Cardinals in a game against the Cincinnati Reds on September 7, 1993. He is one of just 18 players in the history of the game to accomplish the feat.
