Card Of The Week April 17

Tomoaki Kanemoto's consecutive game streak came to an end last week. He entered the game as a pinch hitter but didn't get credit for a time at bat when a base runner was thrown out stealing to end the inning. Seems like an odd way to end a consecutive game streak - although much better than Gehrig's way (i.e. retiring due to illness that would eventually kill him).

Anyway, so Kanemoto's streak ends at 1766 games. He had last missed a game back in 1998, so I thought it would be fitting to show his BBM card from that year (#323):
