PRODcast 60: Jon Rauch's Seriously Subpar Shattoos & Burgeoning Bonanza of Back Hair

OH. HEY, BACK HAIR.

It would appear that only six MLB players have ever worn #60 on purpose, and they are: Scott Schoenweis (12 years), Dave Heaverlo (7 years), Manny Corpas (7 years), Rauch (5 years), Todd Coffey (5 years) Rocky Biddle (5 years) … a few at 4 and 3, but probably on accident.

Dick Allen (who wore the number in 1977 as a member of the A’s) is the career bWAR leader amongst #60s, with 58.74. Former Giant Matt Williams wore #60 in 1987. No baseball player will ever hit 60 home runs again*.
