1985 Fleer #529 - Mike Squires

On this day in 1952, Mike Squires was born.

In 1975, and then from 1977 until 1985, Mike Squires played any and every role the White Sox asked of him. Primarily a first baseman, Mike defined himself as a late inning defensive wizard. Squires' finest accomplishment may have been his Gold Glove in 1981.

As the longest tenured player on the 1983 White Sox team, Mike raised the AL West pennant from the roof of old Comiskey Park.

Mike Squires also caught 2 games in 1980, and played 13 games at 3B in 1984. This is only notable because he threw LEFThanded.
