Twilight Tigers: Gregg Jefferies

This post is a tad late, but nonetheless, the weekly installment of star players finishing their careers out with the Tigers has arrived.

One of the hottest rising stars was a Mets player by the name of Gregg Jefferies

Jefferies would play 14 major league seasons, spending his final two in Detroit from 1999-2000.  Five years spent in the Big Apple, finishing 3rd in the ROY voting in 1989 stealing 21 bases, hitting .258 with 12 Hrs and 56 RBIs during that campaign.  Represented the St Louis in the All-Star game twice in 1993, 1994.  Career .289 hitter.  I am sure This Way to the Clubhouse would be able to give a closer insight to the lore of Mr. Jefferies.

Jefferies would appear in roughly 110 games over two season w/ the Tigers hitting 8 HRs, batting .238, and knocking in 32 RBIs.

We had this guy?

Keep it Hot on the Corner, pat.
