today is kevin gross' wedding anniversary. i know this because 19 years ago, gross threw a no-hitter against the giants, and vin scully let us know that it also happened to be his wedding anniversary.
and a 1991 upper deck card
it's a rare case where i prefer 1992 donruss over 1992 topps (which had dodger stadium on the backs of the dodger cards)
here's gross' 1993 upper deck card
in 1994, both topps
1995 topps had another gross in dodger stadium photo
overall, gross was 40-44 with the dodgers, which was on par with his career. he won exactly 60 games for the phillies, 20 for the expos, and 20 for the rangers, plus throw in 2 at the end of his career with the angels. he also lost 66, 23, 24 and 1 games for those teams, finishing his career with a 142-158 record. still, he achieved a level of baseball and dodger immortality thanks to his performance 19 years ago.
here's to you kevin gross, and thanks for signing all those cards!
