Featured Player: Tucker Ashford

Thomas Steven Ashford played a brief stint with the Yankees.
Very brief.
So brief that my mentioning of how brief is longer than his Yankees career.
Ashford was born on December 4, 1954 in Memphis Tennessee and graduated from the University of Mississippi and was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the first round, second overall in the 1974 amateur draft.
On October 24, 1980, he was traded by the Texas Rangers to the New York Yankees with cash for Roger Holt.
His brief career lasted three game with no at bats meaning that there is no offensive stats for Ashford.
He did play two games at second base defensively and never touched the ball.
On October 27, 1982, he was purchased by the Toronto Blue Jays only to be returned back to New York and left again 13 days later in a trade to the New York Mets for minor leaguer Steve Ray and a player to be named later. The player became minor leaguer Felix Perdomo.
Ashford retired after being granted free agency in May of 1984.
The image shown is a 1979 Topps card (#247) with his autograph when he was with the Padres.
