h2h Corner ~ Check You Out On the Flip Side: Paul Zuvella

For the history of this series, check out this article: Check You Out On the Flip Side: Howard Johnson.

Paul Zuvella back 1987 Paul Zuvella front 1987

Zuvella seems to be the typical 1980s utility man, i.e. light-hitting. In addition to short stop, he logged games at every infield position. As the term utility man would suggest, Zuvella was kind of a catch-all, even, apparently, in his personal life as he enjoys reading, watching movies and playing chess.

What most fascinates me is that he has a musical last name and enjoys playing music. If only he were an active major leaguer this summer when the vuvuzelas ruled! It’d be funny for me to see the Yankees ban them but allow Zuvella to still play! Or, at the least, the club could make an exception so that Zuvella would approach the plate to the tune of crescendo-ing vuvuzelas.

There could also be whole sections of fans called Zuvella’s Vuvuzelas – like the Padilla Flotilla.

Alas, Zuvella would hit just .122 in 35 games as a Yankee. In addition to this card, we will, only slightly, remember him as a minor part of a trade that sent Ken Griffey, Sr. to the Atlanta Braves.
