17 - Johnny Ruffin
Back photo: N/A.
Ties to my personal collections: Nothing direct. Baseball Reference lists former Expo and Blue Jay Randy St. Claire as the most similar pitcher.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 2.
Wiki-facts: He also played one season in Nippon Professional Baseball with the Kintetsu Buffaloes and one season in the Korea Baseball Organization for the SK Wyverns.
How was his strike-shortened 1994? Pretty good. He went 7-2, with an ERA just over 3.09 over 70 innings with 1 save.
Birthday boy: July 29, 1971. Outside the sporting world, he shares it with Bryan Dattilo from Days of Our Lives. Nobody else from the 4 major team sports was born that date.
