Card #93 - Dallas McPherson
Born: July 23, 1980
On September 10, 2004, Dallas made his MLB debut with the Angels against the White Sox, scoring his first run. Coming full circle, McPherson made his ChiSox debut on May 17, 2011.
In between, he has bounced around the majors and minors, plagued by injury and bad luck. Dallas signed with the White Sox as a free agent in November 2010. During 2011 Spring Training, he had impressed the Sox coaching staff so much that he was one of the last cut.
In many ways his Chicago debut was like his MLB debut, both were pinch appearances where something positive happened. In his Angels debut, he pinch ran and scored a run. In McPherson's debut on the South Side, he pinch hit and singled up the middle, moving Gordon Beckham to third, setting up the winning run. It was Dallas' first hit in the majors since September 10, 2008.
