Happy Baseball Birthday- Brandon Belt

Today we give a Happy Baseball Birthday! ⚾️🎂🎁🎉🥳 shout out to my favorite San Francisco Giants player, Brandon Belt.

⚾️Brandon Kyle Belt was born on April 20, 1988, in Nacogdoches, Texas, played baseball at San Jancinto Jr College and at the University of Texas.

Brandon has been one of my favorite ballplayers since his first full season with the Giants in 2012 (including winning a World Series Ring against my beloved Detroit Tigers in 2012).

3️⃣0️⃣8️⃣ On the 2014 World Series against the Kansas City Royals, Brandon played in all 7 WS games, collecting 8 base hits, batting .308. 

My favorite Brandon Belt baseball card in my collection is his his 2022 Topps Living Set card, #484.

✌Here's to you, Brandon, hope you have a great game tonight against the NY Mets.

Play BALL! ⚾️

Tigers Card Tuesday- Welcome to Detroit, Spencer Torkelson

22 year old Spencer Torkelson, the Detroit Tigers #1 prospect, will make his big league debut on Friday afternoon at Comerica Park vs the Chicago White Sox. 

I absolutely love this baseball card.

🐯 I don't currently own the card, mostly because I just now came across it on TCDB. 

👀 I was looking for this card.

😎 Torkelson has so many cool looking cards, and he hasn't even taken his first official at bat as a big leaguer.

1️⃣ The Tigers #1 overall pick in the 2020 MLB Player Draft, the former Arizona State All-American was told of the promotion last Saturday morning...and, then... the young power hitting First Baseman was told he'd be the every day first sacker by his Hall of Fame predecessor, Miguel Cabrera.

😊 This is gonna be a fun year of baseball in the Motor City. 

Hope ya'll are having a terrific day as we inch closer and closer to Opening Day 2022.

Play BALL! 🐯 ⚾️
