American baseball player, an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Eisenreich was originally signed by the Minnesota Twins on 6/03/1980 after being selected in the 16th round of the free-agent draft.
His career has been mediocre at best, plagued with injuries, and, on occasion, the personal choice to retire; he wasn't even a part of professional baseball in 1985 or 1986. The highlight of Eisenreich's career came in 1997 when he played as a back-up pitcher with the Florida Marlins for five of the seven games of the World Series; Florida was the world championship team that year. He also played with Philadelphia in the 1993 World Series, but that team did not win. Another of Eisenreich's few achievements include the three grand slams that he's hit throughout his career.
On a more solemn note, he and his family have been through a lot; Eisenreich has Tourette's Syndrome. TS is a neurological disorder that usually strikes children between the ages of six and nine, however, it can occur as late as age 21, as it did with him. The disorder causes facial and body tics. Less common are verbal tics, which often cause violent outbursts in public, giving the public a very negative image of the disease.
