#585) JON NUNNALLY
Jon Nunnally was traded by the Boston Red Sox to the New York Mets for Jermaine Allensworth on November 12, 1999. He appeared in 48 games for New York before the Orix BlueWave (Japanese Pacific League) purchased his contract from the Mets on June 8, 2000. Jon had not wanted to return to the minors so New York allowed him to negotiate a contract with Orix. "I'm used to playing everyday," Nunnally explained, "I was hoping to play a little more. I wasn't doing the job playing once a week."
Jon Nunnally signed his card in the set for me when the Columbus Clippers faced the Indianapolis Indians on April 13, 2009. Jon is the batting coach for the Clippers.
