WSC Birth Years: A.J. Pierzynski

Card #51 - A.J. Pierzynski

Born: December 30, 1976

A.J. is a guy that you love... if he's on your team. Pierzynski will do everything in his power to mess with an opponent's head. Plus, he knows the rule book inside and out.

If you think that this is A.J.'s only threat, you'd be wrong. Along with an intimate knowledge of the game, Pierzynski brings a keen eye to the batters box. In 2009, he brought his season average to .300, for the first time since 2004.

A.J. regularly appears on "top ten most hated athletes" polls. That status shouldn't change any time soon. Look for A.J. to continue to do the little things that annoy opponents in 2010.

Always been a fan - most annoying thing to me is spelling his name.

I am pretty happy he ain't in the NL or I am sure he would be on my last nerve, but I have always thought he was a quality backstop with a plus bat and a knack for gettin in a hitters kitchen.
