Happy Reds birthday, Matt Belisle!


June 6, 1980

The Braves sent Matt Belisle to the Reds in 2003 to complete a deal for Kent Mercker. He made his big league debut for the Reds against the Cardinals on September 7, just a few weeks after the trade. Belisle was featured in 2008 Topps’ “Year in Review” set, recounting his “Big, Strange Day” against Pittsburgh the prior year. There is little doubt in my mind that this would have been a Topps Now card had it occurred this year.
