#133 Quilvio Veras



STRETCHING : verb \╦łstrech\
to put your arms, legs, etc., in positions that make the muscles long and tight


Quilvio is 5'9" so his muscles aren't that long.

Scored the first run ever at Safeco Field.

Led the NL in stolen bases in 1995.

In 1988 he had to leave a game after finding out his brother was murdered in the Dominican Republic.

Florida Marlins (1995–1996)
