Homer Giles Bush

Homer Bush, one of the all time great baseball names, was drafted in the 7th round of the 1991 draft by the Padres, he never played for the Padres but did win a World Series ring at the their expense.

He was traded to the Yankees with Gordon Amerson, Hideki Irabu and Vernon for Rafael Medina, Ruben Rivera and $3 in April 1997. He made his major league debut in August with the Yankees against the Texas Rangers. In February of 1999 he was traded to the Blue Jays with Graeme Lloyd and David Wells for Roger Clemens. In May of 2002 he signed as a free agent with the Marlins, he signed in December of 2002 with the Padres, but was released shortly thereafter and signed as a free agent with the Yankees.

Homer won a World Series ring in the 1998 series, when the Yankees swept the Padres. He went o-2 in the series, but he was there and won the ring. I got the card off of ebay.
