608th Place - Jeff Robinson
This is the other Jeff Robinson.
This Jeff Robinson played in the majors for nine years, mostly as a relief pitcher. Robinson is lucky to be captured in a Pirates uniform for this pic, because he had just been traded during the season for Rick Reuschel, who got the airbrush treatment. Robinson got into 81 games in 1987, and was good in most of them, finishing the season with a sub-3.00 ERA.
Robinson was a tall right-handed pitcher who played his high school and college ball in Fullerton, CA. It's hard to find much on him on the interwebs, mostly because the other Jeff Robinson passed away and that story seems to clog the search engines.
Here is a youtube video, though, of Robinson talking about his college days:
