Longoria to join Upton, Montoyo in giveaway shrine

Third baseman Evan Longoria will go where only B.J. Upton and Charlie Montoyo have gone in Biscuits lore this season. The team is giving out figurines with Longoria's likeness and graciously provided some snap shots today.

Above is a picture of a finished figurine -- one of Chase Utley given away two years ago at Scranton/Wilkes-Barre -- with a clay model of Longoria, with a picture of one of Longoria's swing last year (by the Advertiser's Mickey Welsh).

The Biscuits gave away Upton two years ago and Montoyo last season. (They initially chose Delmon Young two years ago but switched after his bat-throwing incident.)

Where is the clay model of the Longoria from? Number 9? What team did he play for with that number?

Stacy Long said...

Good point. I remember 6, I believe.
