Where does his last home game’s magic rank with the best plays of The Captain’s career?
September 26, 2014
Gary Sheffield hoped he would need just a handful of at-bats when the season started before he could hit his 500th home run, take a victory lap, and then get back to the game. Instead, Sheffield is searching for a new team to hit that 500th bomb with after the Tigers released him on Tuesday morning.
After pulling up lame on Monday night against the Angels, Gary Sheffield seemed destined for the disabled list. That trip to the disabled list opened up a slot for a slugger from Toledo.
It could have been the cold weather, or maybe it was the shift from outfield to designated hitter. Either way, the first three weeks of the 2007 season were not kind to Gary Sheffield.
