Food-Issue Friday: 1993 Hostess Brett Butler

"In my eight seasons as a professional ballplayer, I’ve had several coaches teach me the art of bunting. None of them mentioned anyone other than Brett Butler. They’ve told me when he stepped into the batter’s box, the whole stadium knew he was bunting (including the other team’s corner infielders) and he still would lay one down safely. I mean, half of his baseball cards are of him bunting!”~ Sam Fuld, Tampa Bay Ray outfielder

1993 Hostess #29 Brett Butler
Braves Alumni Notes:
  MLB Record holder for bunt hits in career- 226
  MLB Record holder for bunt hits in season- 42 (1992)
  Nearly 25% of his hits in 1992 were via the bunt.
