Indians Uniform Number - 0 Junior Ortiz

Sometimes, choosing the "best" Indians player associated with a certain jersey number takes almost no work at all. Such is the case for Junior Ortiz ('92-'93). Junior is the ONLY player I could find in Tribe history to wear the single zero on his jersey. Ortiz batted with a .250 AVG in '92 and fell to .221 in '93. During the course of his two-year stint in a Cleveland uniform (appearing in nearly 495 games), he hit a grand total of ZERO triples and ZERO home runs, and a whopping 20 doubles (sarcasm, in case you weren't sure).

Now, in Junior's defense, he played backup catcher to Sandy Alomar, Jr. That would have made life rough for most catchers.
