John Jarvis, Good Start - 2666

John Jarvis helped his Prince William Cannons to a good start in this June 1991 game, according to The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.

Jarvis knocked an RBI single in the first inning in a game Prince William went on to win by a score of 5-1, The Free Lance-Star wrote.

For Jarvis, that RBI was one of just seven he had for the team in 30 games on the year. Those RBI were also the last seven of his brief career. He played just three seasons, never making AA.

Jarvis' career began in 1989, taken by the Yankees in the 32nd round of the draft out of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.

Jarvis played his first season with the Yankees in the rookie Gulf Coast League. The catcher got into 23 games there, hitting just .189. He also hit one home run.

He moved to single-A Greensboro in 1990. There, he got into 60 games on the year. He hit .247, with three home runs and 18 RBI.

For 1991, Jarvis made high-A Prince William, but his playing time was brief. He got into just 30 games and hit just .165. It was his final season as a pro.
