#87 Dean Palmer

ALERT : adjective \ə-ˈlərt\
: able to think clearly and to notice things

For some reason I often confuse Dean Palmer for Lee Stevens,
also thinking that they both played for the Angels and Rangers.
Not so though.
Palmer - 14 years Rangers, Royals, Tigers
Stevens - 11 years Angels, Rangers, Expos, Indians

He began playing in the minors at age 17, and hit the majors at age 20.

In 1992 Palmer became the first Texas ballplayer to ever homer in the first three games of a season.

He led the league in strikeouts in 1992 with 154.
