Card #80: 1993 Donruss #39

YEAR: 1993
FRONT: Donruss
SET: Donruss
TEAM: Cleveland Indians

Here we go, a terrific action shot of a play at the plate.  It would appear that the runner was safe in this case however.  The runner is Luis Rivera of the Boston Red Sox.  I know this because I am, of course, a huge Boston Red Sox fan.  Now, let's do something fun.  Let's figure out when this picture was taken.  The wall in the background clearly shows that this picture was taken at Fenway Park, plus Rivera is clearly wearing a home uniform and Alomar a visiting uniform.  Alomar's 1992 stats indicate that he played at Boston in just two games on June 6 and June 7.  Looking at the box scores, Rivera did not score on the 6th, but did on the 7th.  And in looking at the play by play on the boxscore, the play occurred in the bottom of the 7th inning and Rivera scored on sacrifice bunt by Jody Reed off of Indians reliever Ted Power.  The Red Sox won 5-1 with Joe Hesketh getting the win, Danny Darwin the save, and Dave Otto the loss.  Alomar had one hit in the loss, a single.  So there you go.
