You'd think they could give this guy one lousy at bat? Now a valuable member of the Detroit Tigers, which is kind of like being a model prisoner on Death Row.

We had this guy back when he was called Tim Bogar.

Acquired solely as depth for Norfolk from the Royals at the end of spring training 1999, he never actually had an opportunity to help the club.

My memory is from a AAA game when Shane was playing for Norfolk. The Tides were playing in Rochester. The game was tied and was top of the 11th. My girlfriend and I had to go. We stopped in a open concourse area beyong left-field fence. The batter was Benny Agbayani. I stood in a spot and bravely predicted that slugger would homer to that spot and win the game for the visitors. I told my (now wife) that I would catch that ball.

Benny hit it well, but as the ball drew near I could see it would fall short. "Oh, well" I said as we left Frontier Field. Then, no sooner than we walk through the gate I hear a huge smack. Yep, Shane Halter air- mailed one... right to the spot I called!

Huge bonus as the ball took a few bounces, out the gate, across the street, and in to my waiting hands!

I'll have to have him sign it someday.

Well, my email address starts with halter971. So if that doesn't tell you how much of a Shane Halter fan I am. He's my favorite baseball player.

It all started at a game I didn't even get to attend but was in downtown Detroit when the Tigers were playing the Yankees when Shane got three hits and Jose Lima recorded a 3 hit shutout! that's when I decided that Shane was my favorite player. The local sports show (Parker and the Man) interviewed Shane that night on my favorite radio station 97.1 WKRK FM. Shane continued to play several more years with the Tig's and he even hit a few game winning homers.

At Tigerfest in Feb of 2002 I wore my Texas Longhorns jersey when Shane signed a baseball. I was also excited to hear when I was out seeing a friend of mine out in California that Angelfest was going to be going on while I was out there. So again, I got Shane to sign my baseball. I only wish I had worn my Tigers gear, but instead I gave in and bought a bunch of Angels stuff.

Now it seems like, sadly, that his playing career might be over. I've tried to see if he was going to resurface on any roster anywhere. I last knew that he played for the Rancho Cucmonga team. Before that the Iowa Cubs. I'm sure he's pleased to see that the team he had his longest stint with (the Detroit Tigers) are doing as well as they are this season.

My only memory of him on the Mets is he played in the last game of 1999 for a couple of innings. That's the game where we won on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 9th.
