678th Place - Ken Schrom

Card #256

In my mind Ken is the epitome of the mid-1980's number five starter.  The innings eater who got shelled a little too hard but managed to stick around a bit to endure the beating.  He even looks weary as he goes into his windup.

Sadly for Schrom, this card would be his last as a player.  He wrapped up his career after the 1987 season, probably because of that 6.50 ERA he sported for Cleveland.

Here's a nice segment he taped recently recounting his experience as an AL All-Star:
