WTF card. Ron Hassey & Danny Heep. Play at the plate.

I just can't wrap my head around this one at all. It's like they're looking to the umpire for instructions or something. Weird.

It appears that Heep was out on this play, as it corresponds to the May 5 1990 game in Oakland. Heep was thrown out at the plate while trying to score from 1st on a Carlos Quintana double. Heep had tripled and scored earlier in the game, and the Sox won 5-1.

Ron Hassey's main claim to fame is being the only man to catch 2 perfect games. He caught Len Barker's and Dennis Martinez's.

Danny Heep ended his career in 1991 with Atlanta. They obtained him from the White Sox in May, he hit .417 in 12 AB's with 4 runs and 3 RBI, and they released him in June. He had gone 0-4 in June.
