While Andre Dawson was the only player to receive the 75% needed for admission into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame during the recent voting session, a former T-Bone and Kansas City, KS native garnered a vote in the process as well.
David Segui was born in Kansas City, KS on July 19, 1966. The son of former major leaguer Diego Segui, David went to high school at Bishop Ward before playing collegiately for Louisiana Tech University. He was later drafted in the 18th round of the 1987 amateur draft by the Baltimore Orioles where he spent the first four and last four years of his career. His major league career spanned from 1990-2004.
Segui played for seven teams in his 15-year career, finishing with a .291/.359/.443 career line. His best season came in 2000 when he split time between the Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians. He finished the season sixth in batting (.334), eighth in hits (192), and 10th in doubles (42). His 19 home runs that year fell two shy of his single-season high, set in 1997 at 21 with the Montreal Expos.
In 2005, Segui played in 31 games with the T-Bones, hitting .339/.464/.514.
