1989 Topps Traded Tommy Gregg 39T - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Word on the street in the early 90s was that Tommy Gregg was a “professional hitter”, but lacked the other skills needed to be a regular at the major league level. In actuality, he wasn’t a very good hitter either, especially in the big leagues.

His greatest contribution to the Braves? He was the return from the Pirates for getting the pointless Ken Oberkfell the hell out of Atlanta. So, there’s that.

Tommy Gregg is now working as a hitting coach in the Marlins organization. Hopefully, he’s better at coaching hitting than he was at actually hitting.
