Out of Place – Ernie Whitt

20 Jun

1990 Bowman - Ernie Whitt

With this week’s interleague Toronto-Atlanta series, I want to point out that Ernie Whitt looks out of place with the Atlanta Braves, with whom he appeared on 1990 Bowman.  Ernie Whitt actually belongs in Canada.

Whitt was a key member of the Toronto Blue Jays throughout the 1980’s as they built themselves into one of the best organizations in baseball.  He became an advocate and supporter of Canadian baseball, and eventually, he actually ended up becoming a Canadian citizen.  He also managed the Canadian National Team for several years, and was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

Take that, Atlanta.
