Fun facts about Jeff Weaver (Source: Wikipedia)

  • Jeffrey Charles Weaver is a retired right-handed Major League Baseball pitcher. During his career, he pitched for the Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, St. Louis Cardinals, and Seattle Mariners. He is the older brother of pitcher Jered Weaver.
  • Following the 2003 season the Yankees traded Weaver to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Kevin Brown. In 2005, he went 14-11, with a 4.22 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, 3 complete games and a career-high 157 strikeouts in 224 innings. Following the 2005 season, Weaver filed for free agency. The Dodgers offered him salary arbitration, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement.
  • On February 15, 2006, Weaver signed a 1-year deal with the Angels for $8.5 million. After posting a 3-10 record with a 6.29 ERA in Anaheim, he was designated for assignment on June 30. In a bit of an ironic coincidence, his younger brother, Jered Weaver, was recalled from the minor leagues and replaced Jeff in the starting rotation.

Fun facts about Robert Fick (Source: Wikipedia)

  • Robert Charles Fick (born in Torrance, California) is a former Major League Baseball first baseman. In 2002, he was named to the American League All-Star Team.
  • The left-handed batter, who throws right-handed, attended Ventura College and later transferred to California State University at Northridge. He was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the 5th round of the 1996 amateur draft.
  • Fick made his major league debut with the Tigers in 1998. His breakout season came in 2001 when he hit a career-best 19 home runs. Fick had another fine offensive year in 2002. He was named to the American League All-Star Team, albeit many attribute the selection being a result of the rule that one player per team must appear in the All-Star Game. In 2002, he also led all major league right fielders in assists, with 21.
