TTM Goodness: Four from the 90's

Last day to vote in Group 4 of the Ugstravaganza.
Let's clear some space in the ol' TTM folder, eh?

Mike Cameron was drafted by the White Sox in 1991 and debuted for them in 1995. After a four year stint, he came to the Reds for a single year, in 1999. He would spend the rest of his 17 year career with the Mariners, Mets, Padres, Brewers, Red Sox, and Marlins, earning 3 Gold Gloves and an All Star nod. In 2001 he hit 4 home runs in one games. He would later found the Cam4Kids Foundation and author "It Takes a Team". Signed is a 1999 Topps Traded #T94.

Rick Wrona was drafted by the Cubs in 1985 and would debut for them in 1988, playing for them for three years before coming to the Reds in 1992 for a 1 year stint. He would spend a year each with the White Sox and Brewers before heading back to minors and eventually retiring in 1998. Signed is a 1993 Stadium Club #64.

Pete Smith was drafted by the Phillies in 1984 and would debut for the Braves in 1987. He would spend 7 years with the Braves, which included 3 shutout innings in the 1992 World Series. He followed that with short stints with the Mets, Reds, Padres, and Orioles, before retiring in 1998. Signed is a 1995 Fleer #382.

Todd Benzinger was drafted by the Red Sox in 1981 and would debut for them in 1987. After two years in Boston he would start his three year stint in Cincinnati that included the 1990 World Series victory, in which he'd appear in all 4 games, starting two, and making the final out in the Series clinching Game 4. He would spend time with the Royals, Dodgers, and Giants before retiring in 1995. Signed is a 1991 Fleer #56.

Go Reds.
