bobby castillo was a dodger double dipper. he burst on the scene in 1977 out of the dodger bullpen late in the season. by the time 1981 rolled around, castillo was one of the dodgers' main relievers.
several months back, roberto at vin scully is my homeboy announced that castillo would be making an appearance at feeldz apparel in la. being an out-of-state opportunist, i sent a couple of cards with a donation for mr. castillo c/o the store. the guys at the store were great, tracking bobby down after his appearance as they apparently didn't open their mail in time. here's his 1979 topps rookie card
very cool. here's to you, bobby castillo - double dipper. thanks for signing my cards, and a big thanks to roberto and the staff at feeldz for making it happen!
