I've never heard of him until this streak.  He won't be breaking any records, but it will be interesting to see how close he gets.

I find it amazing that a guy that's hitting around .220 has a 33 game hit streak! Something about this picture just doesn't add up? Pretty sure if I was the opposing skipper he wouldn't see a fastball one to hit the entire game, maybe the entire series...  ;)

I am an Atlanta Braves fan. When Dan Uggla played for the Florida Marlins he seemed to beat the Braves with timely hits. At first I was excited when the Braves got him but I must admit I was thinking he was a bust the first half of the year. That is why his batting average is so low is that except for his home runs he was not productive. Hitting a baseball is a game of adjustments. He must have found that one small thing that allows him to connect on a regular basis. When I read Joe Dimagio's life story I found out he had a few lucky hits too. So this streak is part skill and part luck. But it is FUN to watch. ;D

being a braves fan it sucked when the streak ended but i knew it wouldn't last much longer. it's hard to get to 56. I still say cal ripkens record will never be broken. This one may one day.
