2010 Chachi #39 Dane Sardinha

Dane Sardinha donned the tools of ignorance for 13 games back in late June/early July during Carlos Ruiz' DL stint. (I believe Paul Hoover was also recovering froma lingering injury for the AAA IronPigs, so Sardinha got the call.) He started 9 games for the Phils, hitting .205 with 3 home runs and 8 RBIs. Despite having played in very small parts of 4 other seasons since 2003, his home run on June 24th against the Indians' Hector Ambriz was his first in the Majors. Sardinha is card #39 in this year's Chachi set.
