dennis lewallyn, double dipper?
lewallyn cemented his double dipper status with the one aforementioned appearance as a dodger in 1978, but then also pitched in 7 more games for the dodgers in 1979. after spending the bulk of the 1980 season in the minors, he was dealt to texas for pepe frias, where he pitched in 4 games and was largely ineffective. in august of 1981, he was picked up by the indians who used him in 7 games. those 7 appearances, and his previous big league work, were enough to garner a 1982 topps card
in all, lewallyn had a big league record of 4-4 with all but one loss coming as a dodger.
here's to you denny lewallyn, double dipper with a 1978 topps burger king dodger update card that should have been!
