1988 Topps Baseball Featuring Card #716 Lenn Sakata
Lenn Sakata in a Yankees uniform? Believe me, I was as taken aback as you probably are when I learned of this startling development. Even less startling: Sakata had only 9 RBI over the previous 2 seasons COMBINED, a number topped by several players in a SINGLE GAME over the history of baseball including Jim Bottomley, Mark Whiten, and Tony Lazzeri who are the single game record holders in the 2 major leagues with 12 RBI in a single game for Whiten & Bottomley and 11 RBI in a single game for Lazzeri.
