Baseball Card of the Day...2008 Topps Heritage James Loney

Last night at Marlins Park in Miami, the New York Mets beat the Marlins, 6-2, behind the 100th career home run by the Mets James Loney.

That 100th career homer gets James Loney our Baseball Card of the Day, my 2008 Topps Heritage #288.

⚾ James Anthony Loney was born in Houston, Texas, on May 4, 1984.

The Los Angeles Dodgers selected Loney with the 19th pick in the 1st round of the 2002 big league amateur player draft.

In 2004 Loney arrived here in Jacksonville to play for our Double A Suns, then affiliated with the Dodgers.

The back of Loney's baseball card shows his two years here, which included the Suns 2005 Southern League Championship.

Loney played for the Dodgers for 7 years, 2006-12, and had double figure years in homers in 2007-11, blasting a career high 15 dingers in '07.

Loney also loves home runs and the #13...he's hit 13 homers three times, in 2008-09, 2013.

Loney then moved on to Boston, Tampa Bay, and now plays with the Mets.

Congratulations! James Loney, on your 100th career HR, and being our Card of the Day.

Play Ball!
