Remember Me? Robert Fick

Robert Fick was a C/1B/OF/DH for the Tigers from 1998-2002. He is known for a few notable accomplishments:
  • Had the last ever hit at Tiger Stadium, a grand slam that reached the roof.
  • In the 2,987,551st case of changing the rule that every MLB team be represented at the All-Star team, Fick was named to the team as a reserve OF in 2002, a.k.a. the infamous tie game. He did, however, manage to go 1-2 with a run scored. He scored the game tying run.
  • Spent many of his formative years hob-nobbing with celebrity types, stealing every scene he was in as a guest (super)star on Cheers, Who's the Boss, and Webster. I'm guessing this is where Alyssa Milano's stalking of attraction to baseball players started.

 Fick was last seen playing in the Golden Baseball League, but his current whereabouts are unknown. I'm guessing he's schooling fools in beer league softball tournaments, but none of my phone calls have been returned.
