I almost forgot I had this one! This is a 1998 Minor League Baseball card of the Batavia Muckdogs.
In '98 the Muckdogs were affiliated with the Philadelphia Phillies. During that season, Williams played in 13 games, hit .283 and stole 6 bases. He only had three RBIs though and didn't get an extra base hit in 53 ABs. Williams struck out 16 times and walked twice.
The 1998 season was the last Minor League baseball season for Ricky Williams.
I was a huge Ricky Williams fan when he came out of college. I really thought he'd have a great NFL career. He seemed to regain his focus this year, but he's not nearly the player I thought he would have been.
Other football greats who played minor league baseball:
- John Elway
- Brian Jordan
- Deion Sanders
- Drew Henson (ha)
