Steve Green, Four Hits - 1279

Steve Green played well this June 1990 night for the London Tigers.

Green went 4 for 4 on the night, reaching base a fifth time, all helping the AA Tigers to a 10-3 win over the Reading Phillies, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Green's season with London, though, was a brief one. He got into just 47 games. His career lasted just 35 games after that. He never made the majors.

Green's career began in 1987, taken by the Dodgers in the 18th round, out of Georgia Tech.

With the Dodgers, Green started at rookie Great Falls. He hit .258 over 53 games. For 1988, he moved to single-A Bakersfield. Over 114 games there, he hit .278, knocking in 56 and stealing 19 bases.

Green started 1989 at single-A Vero Beach, hitting .293 over 78 games. Then, in July, he was sent to the Tigers, traded with Domingo Michel for Billy Bean.

With the Tigers, Green played at single-A Lakeland, getting into 22 games and hitting .329.

For 1990, he made the move to AA London, getting into those 47 games and hitting just .238. It was as high up the baseball ladder as Green would get.

Green returned to Lakeland for 1991, but for just 20 games. He picked up 15 hits in 63 at bats. After not being recorded as playing in 1993, Green returned to the Dodgers system and high-A Vero Beach in 1993. There, he played his final 15 games as a pro.
