On this day in 1972 Marc Newfield was born in Sacramento, California. He was still only 17 when the Mariners selected him with the #7 overall pick in the 1990 draft, and made his major league debut as a 20 year old in 1993. Baseball America listed him as one of the game's top 50 prospects for five straight seasons between 1991-95.
Unfortunately, Newfield never lived up to the hype. He played six seasons in the majors and hit .249/.303/.375 over 355 games split between three teams, including three years as a Brewer from 1996-98. When the Brewers released him following the 1998 season he was done with the majors despite being just 26 years old.
