Young Superstars II #26 - Jeff Treadway

Here's another shot of the old sci-fi looking Reds uniforms.

Treadway's career isn't very remarkable, but one Saturday at Veterans Stadium, Jeff had game to remember.

In the top of the third inning on May 26, 1990, with runners on first and second, Jeff hit a Pat Combs pitch over the right field wall. The Braves went on to score five runs that inning.

But Treadway wasn't finished yet. In the top of the fifth, this time facing Don Carman with the bases empty, Treadway sent another ball over the right field wall. Then again in the top of the seventh facing Darrel Akerfelds with a runner on first, he did it a third time.

Three of his 11 home runs in 1990 came in that one game. His six RBIs were half of the Braves' 12 runs as they defeated the Phillies for their 16th win of the season (but by that point, they were already 13.5 games out of first).

After his playing days were over, he coached at the Stratford Academy in Macon, Georgia.
