742nd Place - Scott McGregor

Card #419

If I'm not mistaken, this is Scott McGregor's last baseball card for Topps.  He was coming off a disasterous 1987 season in which he posted a 6.64 ERA.

Perhaps that's why his eyes are closed in this picture - even he couldn't bear to watch.

In 1988 he would make four more starts for the Orioles but that would be it.  It's not very often anymore somebody gets to spend their entire career with one team like McGregor did.  He's considered one of the best players in Baltimore history

He's still with the Orioles in their minor league system as a pitching coach.
