Wes Chamberlain

1992 Topps

Chamberlain played for six years in the majors, breaking in with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1990 and finishing with the Boston Red Sox in 1995. In 385 games he hit .260 with 38 home runs. He had a strong showing for the Phillies in 1991 as he hit .240 with 13 home runs, 50 RBIs and 51 runs scored. It was a good enough performance to earn him fifth place in the National League Rookie of the Year vote. He hit .282 with 12 home runs for Philadelphia in 1993, but soon the team traded him to the Red Sox where he struggled in his final major league games.

Chamberlain played in two games of the 1993 World Series for the Phillies against the Toronto Blue Jays. He had two at bats, but did not get a hit. The Blue Jays won the series 4-2.

Chamberlain played professionally from 1987-1999. His book is available here.
