The Vet Who Changed Baseball History

s090428_jeterpg-horizontalOn May 29, 1995, Derek Jeter made his first major-league debut with the Bombers in Seattle. Jeter also collected first his hit, a single off Seattle’s Tim Belcher, which started his legendary reputation. His 3,000 hits reputation didn’t begin until 1996.

The greatest season came for the Washington National’s in 1995 with pitcher Tony Tarasco, scoring 14 home runs, 40 RBI and 24 stolen bases. He was also directly involved in one of the most controversial plays in post season history. In 1995, Tarasco was a part of four-player deal which sent National’s Marquis Grissom to the Braves. The year of 1995 holds a lot of memories for this National’s vet. How amazing is it to unfold it all here! Stay tuned!tony
