TTM Success: Glenallen Hill

Back in 2000, the Yankees made a few mid-season aquisitions. While David Justice was the biggest piece, and rightfully so (he was great in 2000), Glenallen Hill was a smaller move that paid huge dividends. He slugged 16 HRs and hit .333, and I swear he hit a homer in every game he played. It was impressive and he really helped solidify the bench and add some right handed pop.

Unfortunately, Hill was later named in the Mitchell Report. He has since landed on his feet as a coach with the Rockies. Hill signed these two cards for me that I sent way back on February 22 to spring training. The Subway Series card sot a tad smudged, but the Topps is perfect.
