Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Considered the hardest worker in the Ranger organization, Kevin ( Belcher ) will try to work his way into the Texas lineup in '91 without first playing in Triple-A. A line drive hitter with the strength to reach the fences, he has an enormously quick bat." - 1991 Score Baseball Card (1991, Score Baseball Cards LLC, Baseball Almanac collection)
