Players in the Dugout

If you think about it, players spend a lot of time in the dugout. Even a regular player probably spends 40% of the game in the dugout. A bench warmer probably spends 90% of his time there. So it's not surprising that there are lots of cards featuring players in the dugout. For one thing, it's an easy place to find a player when he's not moving around too much. How do players spend all that time?

They can wave at the fans.

They can brag about something. I'm not sure what Holland is bragging about. Maybe it's that he can hold 3 baseballs in one hand.

They can glare at the photographer, and by extension, at us.
