1991 Classic #T30 - Matt Stark

On this day in 1990, the Sox signed Matt Stark.

Matt already had MLB experience when the Pale Hose signed him. Stark played in five games with the 1987 Toronto Blue Jays. Even though he was a catcher, he never appeared in a game at that position for the White Sox. In the eight games that Matt played for the Sox, after his September 1990 call up, he played five as the designated hitter and three as a pinch hitter.

Stark spent 1991 playing for the White Sox AAA team in Vancouver and never again graced the majors, but continued to play minor league ball on and off until 1999.
