Stubbs is currently playing in his second season with the Reds but this year is his first full season. Stubbs played in 42 games last year with 180 at bats where he hit .267 with 17 RBIs and 8 home runs.
Stubbs' power numbers went way up this year in which he hit .255 with 22 home runs and 77 RBIs. His team is currently down 1-0 but winning today’s game 4-3 in the 7th inning in the NLDS against the Phillies.
I would like to thank Stubbs for taking the time to sign this card for my collection, especially during playoff time. I hope him and the Reds can pull a win tonight and win the series because man, do I hate the Phillies.

Ausmus retired from baseball on Sunday after playing 18 MLB seasons. Ausmus played for the Padres, Tigers, Astros and this season for the Dodgers. This season he played for the Dodgers but missed most of the season because of injury. In 71 at bats this season, Ausmus batted .222 with two RBIs.
Brad had a hell of a career being a three-time Gold Glover and was an All-Star in 1999 with the Tigers. In a bit under 2,000 MLB games, Ausmus batted .251 with 80 home runs and 607 RBIs. Ausmus finishes his MLB career tenth all-time in fielding percentage at .994.
I wish Brad all the best in his life after baseball and would like to thank him for taking the time earlier this season to sign this card for me. I personally think we will see Ausmus as a manager/coach in no time.
