Since we are in the midst of Spring Training I figured there would be no better time than now to show off some prospect autographed Baseball cards in my collection. Featured here are the Dodgers autographed prospects cards from the 2002 SPx set. Unfortunately, I am only missing the Kazuhisa Ishii card for completion. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen one.
The most notable player here is former Dodger catcher David Ross. He had created a nice home for himself in Atlanta, having played there the past 4 seasons as their backup. As you would expect, Ross was solid defensively and was more than serviceable with the bat. After all, if a catcher can provide stellar defense and bat about .270 then they're doing their job. Seeing that, the Boston Red Sox picked him up as a free agent this winter on a two year deal worth $6.2 Mil.
Congrats, David! I'm glad to see a former Dodger farmhand having some success.
