The Reds’ Michael Lorenzen joined an elite, exclusive club Wednesday night. The club is so small, it only has two members – Lorenzen and Babe Ruth.
Lorenzen pitched and got credited with the win, hit a homer, and played in the field. He was the first player to do all three in one game since 1921 when The Babe did it.
To honor the occasion, I made a replica of the Babe’s 1933 Goudey card for Mikey Biceps. I kept most of the original design – even the little Goudey logo. I also threw in another custom design for Lorenzen that I put together last night. This card shows Lorenzen as “SP/CF” because Reds’ Manager David Bell actually named Lorenzen as the team’s starting centerfielder last night.
