DERREL THOMAS

70 grade DADGLASSES, 70 grade DADHAT, 80 grade DADLAP, 80 grade TOOTHGAP

Can we be certain that this isn’t an alias for Ron Washington? A Dave Chapelle character? A figment of our imagination?

Thomas played 15 seasons for the Astros, Padres, Giants, Dodgers, Expos, Angels and Phillies as a 2B, SS and OF. He had a career average of .249, OPS of .649, OPS+ of 84, a career WAR of 6.6. Thomas was a part of the Dodgers’ WS championship team in ‘81, holds the unique distinction of playing every position (except pitcher) in the bigs, and currently coaches at the Adrenaline Athletic Training Center in Riverside, CA.
