93 - Rob Dibble

Front photo: The wind-up.

Back photo: And the pitch.

Better photo?: The angle for the photo on the front seems odd. Odd is good.

Ties to my personal collections: None.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 14

Wiki-facts: "Dibble is one of 41 pitchers in Major League history to accomplish the nine-pitch/three-strikeout half-inning, a feat known as an immaculate inning."

Google it: The first video that comes up has him fighting in the clubhouse w/ Lou Piniella.
How was his strike shortened 1994? Did not pitch due to surgery.

Birthday boy: January 24, 1964. He shares it with former NFL running back Timmy Smith, who still has the record for most rushing yards in a Super Bowl with 204.

Up Next: Gary Di Sarcina (And yes, on the actual card it is spelled that way)
