Baseball card story from Jim Rushford

Outfielder Jim Rushford played eight seasons of professional baseball. He made the major leagues in 2002 with the Brewers, hitting .143 with 1 HR and 6 RBI in 23 games. He kindly answered my questions about baseball cards by sharing a picture and a story.

"This picture is on a baseball card. It is my favorite because it was take just after I crossed home plate after hitting my one and only official Major League home run. I hit it in Arizona  off of Rick Helling on Friday September 13, 2002. I was 3 for 4 with 3 RBI's that day. It was a moment that I wish I could freeze in time."

Thanks! I don't have that card, but here is one from my collection.
