happy mother's day! here are some more cards from a sheet of 15 that was part of the 1990 target dodgers giveaway set.
here - who seemed to have some bad luck before helping the dodgers win the world series in 1988. in march of 1981, the dodgers traded hatcher to minnesota, and then went on to win the world series. six years later, the twins released hatcher, and then they, too, went on to win the fall classic.
his 1971 topps card, but his team affiliation is noted as the cardinals, as he pitched in one game for saint louis in 1970 after they claimed him on waivers from the dodgers late that september. he had only made his dodger debut earlier that season, and his 1970 topps card shows him wearing a jersey that i believe to be from the kansas city a's (his previous major league team) although he is listed as a dodger. i believed that, but i was wrong - he's wearing his spokane indians minor league jersey on his 1970 topps card (thanks eric).
that post. ortega was 7-13 with the dodgers over parts of five seasons prior to the aforementioned trade.
that's it for this week - take your mom to brunch if you can!
