17 - Johnny Ruffin

Front photo: Looks like an in-game photo, but it seems very spring-training.

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.


Up Next: #18 Scott Stahoviak
