Ducey survived more than a decade in the big leagues without ever winning a fulltime job. Mainly a defensive replacement in the outfield, Ducey owned a decent arm and showed some extra-base power at the plate, but never hit consistently enough to earn regular playing time. He came up through the Blue Jays' system and spent his first five-and-a-half seasons with Toronto before getting traded to California in July 1992 with catcher Greg Myers for reliever Mark Eichhorn. After bottoming out with Texas in 1994, he spent two years in Japan but returned to the major leagues with Seattle in 1997. He logged a career-high 217 at-bats in 1998 while filling in for an injury-plagued Jay Buhner. (AGL)

FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
» September 14, 1987: In an 18–3 rout of the Orioles, the Blue Jays erupt for a ML-record 10 home runs. Ernie Whitt leads the parade with three round trippers, Rance Mulliniks and George Bell hit 2, and Lloyd Moseby, Rob Ducey, and Fred McGriff each add one. Mike Hart hits one for Baltimore to tie the 2-team major-league record of 11. In the 7th inning, the Jays Kelly Gruber makes an out and, in his next at bat in the frame, hits into a DP tie a major-league record for most outs-inning. Cal Ripken's streak of 8,243 consecutive innings (908 games) is broken when he is lifted in the 8th for pinch runner Ron Washington.

» September 18, 1991: In Toronto's 5–3 win over Seattle, Toronto's Rob Ducey is knocked unconscious in a collision at the plate with Seattle C Scott Bradley. Unlike most catchers, Bradley keeps his mask on for throws from the OF, and Ducey hits his head on the mask.

» July 30, 1992: The Blue Jays trade C Greg Myers and OF Rob Ducey to the Angels in exchange for P Mark Eichhorn.

» August 28, 1998: The Mariners clout three home runs in a 10–3 loss to the Yankees, making them the 1st team in history to reach the 200–HR mark for a season in three consecutive years. Shane Monahan, Russ Davis, and Rob Ducey each belts a solo round–tripper for Seattle.

» August 24, 1999: The Phillies defeat the Padres, 18-2, as CF Rob Ducey gets five of Philadelphia's 22 hits.
