2002 Topps, Demetrius Heath
#T200 Demetrius Heath
Here is the seventh and final 2002 Topps card. This one features Demetrius Heath and it was sent to me by Paul, of Paul's Random Stuff.
Heath was a 31st round selection of the Tigers in the 2000 draft. He played in the Tigers organization from 2001-2003 and he never got above high-A ball. He got released by the Tigers after the '03 season and he ended up playing for the Atlantic City Surf in 2004. He did good enough with them that the Angels signed him in August of that year assigned him to their California League team. He hit .338 with them in 74 at-bats, but it wasn't enough and he got released after 22 games.
After that, Heath bounced around the independent circuit. He went back to Atlantic City for two seasons. He then split the 2007 season with the Saint Paul Saints of the American Association and the Schaumburg Flyers of the Northern League. 2008 was spent with the Ft. Worth Cats (AA) and the Winnipeg Goldeyes (NL). He didn't play at all last year, so his career is likely done.
