Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has his own baseball card

His full name is actually Rudolph Claus Blitzensen.

According to Baseball Reference, the Greenland native was signed by Factory Team #4 at the age of 3 in 2008. The switch-hitting shortstop then played three seasons in the Arctic League and finally broke through with the Holiday League's North Pole Reindeer this past year. Blitzensen (also known as Mr. December) batted .312 while clubbing 12 home runs and 79 RBIs for the postseason contenders.
