Tom Veryzer (#168)

Another nice signature received by mail. Tom Veryzer was the shortstop for the Detroit Tigers starting in 1975. On June 8, 1975 he doubled in the 9th inning to spoil a no-hitter by Ken Holtzman. Tom held the shortstop position until Alan Trammell came along, and then he was traded to Cleveland. He spent four seasons with the Indians, and ended up finishing his career with the Chicago Cubs in 1984. He has a career batting average of .241 with 687 hits, 231 RBIs, and 14 home runs.
