April 12

2002 Fleer Tradition Update #U161 - Antonio Osuna

On this day in 1973, Antonio Osuna was born.

Antonio came to the White Sox in 2001, but one could easily miss him. He only played in four games that year and spent most of the season on the disabled list. Osuna came roaring back in 2002 and played in fifty-nine games. Antonio was traded to the New York Yankees after a fairly successful 2002 for Orlando Hernandez.

Osuna was the first player to wear number 13, after Ozzie Guillen left via free agency after the 1997 season.
