 Biographical Information
Tim Spehr was quite a slugging catcher in spite of his low lifetime batting average of .198. In spite of only having 556 lifetime at bats, Spehr managed to slam 19 home runs in the majors. Ironically, Spehr's best year in the majors was his last when he was with the Kansas City Royals in 1999. That year, Spher had a batting average of .206, but in a mere 155 at-bats, he hit 9 home runs and drove in 26 runs. Originally drafted by the Royals in the 5th round of the 1988 amateur draft, Spehr also saw action in the big leagues with the Montreal Expos, Atlanta Braves, New York Mets in addition to his 3 tours of duty with the Royals.
