127 - Bryan Harvey

Front: Rather generic pitching photo.

Back: Looks to be celebrating one of his 45 saves.

Better side: An easy win for the back.

Ties to my personal collections: None, but I do have his autograph out of 1996 Leaf Signature.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 6.

Wiki-facts: "named Rookie Pitcher of the Year by The Sporting News" (1988)

Google it: There was a musician with the same name. He was murdered, along with his family, in a spree killing in Richmond.

How was his strike-shortened 1994? A 5.23 ERA with 6 saves in 10 games. His 1995 would be even worse - 1 game, and an ERA of infinity. 

Birthday boy:  June 2, 1963. No other MLBers were born that date. One-game NHLer Jeff Eatough also was. Doug Evans played 354 more games with stops in Winnipeg, St. Louis and Philly. Of the three NFLers born that day, Vic Bellamy, Dana Wright and Larry Roberts, Larry was easily the most successful on the field, with two Super Bowl championships over 8 years with the 49ers.

Next up: Billy Hatcher
