Year: 1989

Tim Fortugno was the definition of a minor league journeyman, a left-handed reliever who managed to pitch in 450 games before finally making it up to the Majors in 1992. With an MLB career that lasted just 76 appearances, it's a wonder we remember him at all. However, Fortugno has two entries in the annals of baseball history that keep his legacy alive: he surrendered George Brett's 3,000th career hit, and in 1989 his Reno Silver Sox team sent him to the Brewers organization in exchange for a little cash and a fresh bag of baseballs.
