73 - Cris Carpenter
Front photo: Pitching.
Back photo: Pitching.
Better photo?: Pretty much a draw here. But if they are from the exact same pitch, that's an interesting pairing.
Ties to my personal collections: None.
Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 4
Wiki-facts: "Cris Carpenter now works at Gainesville High School, in Gainesville, Georgia as a social studies teacher."
Google it: Only one of the options on the first page refer to fellow Cardinals alum Chris Carpenter.
How was his stike shortened 1994? Went 2-5 with a 5.03 ERA. Would not play in the majors in 1995, but would finish his career in 1996 with a one month stint in Milwaukee.
Birthday boy: April 5, 1965. Nobody at any of the *-reference was born on that date. The only person at wikipedia's April 5th entry that was born that date was Turkish soccer player/manager Aykut Kocaman.
Up Next: 74 - Vinny Castilla
