Gather Around Kiddies

Uncle Robbie wants to show you how not to bunt. If this isn't the most amazing display of recklessness at bat you've ever seen, I don't know what is. Robert Donald Wilfong is begging to have his hand broken here. And for some reason he is smiling (I think).

What's better, his "Career Highlights" on the back of the card reads: "Had 12 bunt hits in his 1st major lg. season ('77)...Led AL in sacrifices (25) in '79."

Obviously, Rob took the term "sacrifice" a little too literal.
