Random Pittsburgh Pirates Card of the Day

The latest installment of our Random Pittsburgh Pirates Card of the Day brings us Jack Wilson's 2006 Topps base card. Jack is mostly known for his solid defense, and this card highlights just that by showing him preparing to field a ground ball. Kids, take notice of his form: weight is shifted to the balls of his feet, eyes focused on the ball, his body is positioned to keep the ball in front of him and he's using two hands! With technique like that, it's no wonder Jack has held down a job as a starting shortstop in the major leagues for the last few years. In 2004, Jack tied for the league lead in triples, with 12. Keep it up, Jack!

In other news, this is the 50th post here at Beer and Baseball Cards! Thanks for reading, random internet readers.
