Adam Alan Lind (born July 17, 1983 in Muncie, Indiana) is an American designated hitter for the Toronto Blue Jays of the American League of Major League Baseball. He was drafted in the third round (83rd overall) of the 2004 Major League Baseball amateur draft and was signed on June 30, 2004. He was originally drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the eighth round (242nd overall) of the 2002 amateur draft. Lind attended Highland High School in Anderson, Indiana. Lind was named 2006 Eastern League MVP, playing for the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

Lind attended the University of South Alabama in 2003 and 2004 before being drafted by the Jays in 2004 as a draft-eligible sophomore. In 2003, he was named as a Freshman 2nd team All-American first baseman. In 2004, he was named a Sun Belt Conference All-Star outfielder.


Professional career

Minor leagues

In his first professional season for the Single-A short-season Auburn Doubledays, Lind hit .312 with 7 home runs and 50 runs batted in.


Lind would be a September call-up for the Blue Jays, and would contribute quickly. His first major league hit came on September 2, 2006 against Lenny DiNardo of the Boston Red Sox. He hit his first major league career home run on September 10, 2006 against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim off of fellow rookie Jered Weaver. In his first five games at the major league level, he had a batting average of .417 with seven hits, one home run, and three runs batted in. After the 2006 season he finished hitting .367, with 2 home runs and 8 RBIs.

Lind was called up on April 13, 2007, from Syracuse to replace Reed Johnson, who was placed on the disabled list with a herniated disc in his back. Lind was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on July 7, 2007, when Johnson was activated from the disabled list. After the conclusion of the 2007 season he hit 11 homers and 48 RBIs while hitting at a poor .238 batting average.

After a poor start to the 2008 season, Lind was demoted to AAA. He subsequently hit .300 and earned a call-up again on June 21, 2008 by new manager Cito Gaston. After being called up Lind finished the 08 season hitting .282 with 9 homers and 40 RBIs.[1][2]


In 2009, Lind was the Opening Day starter at designated hitter for the Blue Jays, and drove in six runs against the Detroit Tigers, a Blue Jay Opening Day record, propelling the Jays to a 12 - 5 victory. He went on to tie the Blue Jays record of 11 RBI in 5 games to start the season, set by Carlos Delgado in 2001. Lind ended April with 4 homers, 20 RBIs and a .315 batting average in 23 games. In a game against the Texas Rangers on August 31, Lind hit a grand slam, the first of his career, and had a career single-game high eight RBI. He became the second Blue Jay of the '09 season (after Lyle Overbay) to win AL Player of the Week for the week ending September 6, sharing the award with Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria. On September 14th, Lind drove in three runs to reach 100 RBIs on the season, becoming the first Blue Jays player to do so since Troy Glaus and Vernon Wells did so in 2006. The next day Lind hit his 30th home run of the season, joining teammate Aaron Hill with thirty or more home runs. He finished the 2009 season with 35 HR, 114 RBI, a batting average of .305, 46 doubles, and 179 hits.

Adam Lind won the Edgar Martinez Award as the most Outstanding DH for the 2009 season.[3]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
