Memphis, Tenn. - Memphis Redbirds legend Stubby Clapp had his day at AutoZone Park one more time on April 21 when the organization officially retired his jersey.

Clapp played in 425 games for Memphis from 1999-2002 and still holds several franchise records. The middle infielder was known for his gritty play and flips when taking the field. No other Memphis Redbird has worn No. 10 since Clapp left. In his four years in Memphis, Clapp hit .269 with 87 doubles, 19 triples, 222 walks and 258 runs scored. He holds the career records for doubles, triples, walks and runs.

Following the game between Memphis and Omaha there was an on-field ceremony to retire Clapp's jersey. Fireworks followed the ceremony in Stubby's honor. To buy your Stubby 10 Pack or to purchase tickets for remaining Redbirds games call (901) 721-6000 or visit
