March 4

1984 Topps #163 - Lorenzo Gray

On this day in 1958, Lorenzo Gray was born.

Lorenzo was a third baseman for the White Sox during the 1982 and 1983 seasons. Gray played a total of fifty-eight games between the two partial seasons.

Lorenzo only had one major league home run and it was a case of "when it rains, it pours". On May 24, 1983, at Comiskey Park, in the bottom of the third inning, Gray hit a home run off of Doug Bird of the Boston Red Sox, to bring the score to 10-4. Lorenzo's home run may have gotten lost in a flurry of scoring early on in the game, but I'm sure he remembers it fondly.
