Player Notes:   Played on the 1988 US Olympic Team ... Topps All-Star Rookie (3B) in 1990 ... In a famous brawl in 1993, he charged 46-year old Nolan Ryan on the mound in a 1993 game where he was promptly put in a head lock while receiving several punches to the head.
This page contains detailed statisics (mostly) not available on the basic profile page. The data here is limited to the Major League and digs a bit deeper into the events that occured on the field. Its important to note that this is not an "advanced stats" section for analytics and metrics. It is a summary of statistics that are more difficult to find on other sites and are related to play level events.
