Lance Johnson, 1992 Donruss Triple Play

Name: Lance Johnson
Team: Chicago White Sox
Position: Center field
Value of card: I don't wanna!
Key 1991 stat: NOOOOOO!!!!
Immaturity is not flattering: Oh, the embarrassment after Lance Johnson was called out stealing second May 27, 1991, against the Rangers. Johnson, convinced he was safe, rolled over on his back and starting thrashing about, kicking his legs and pounding his fists while emitting a high-pitched scream that caused dogs near the stadium to start barking. He then sat up, spiked his helmet and yelled, "I hate you! I hate you!" at umpire Jim Quick for the next three minutes. When he saw manager Jeff Torborg come out of the dugout to retrieve him, Johnson laid down, stiff as a board, and started holding his breath. Torborg, sheepish and resigned, dragged Johnson off the field, gave him a spanking and sent him to the locker room to think about what he had done.
