1981 Donruss, Bob Lacey
#240 Bob Lacey
Next up is the card of Bob Lacey that I got signed through the mail. I sent this card to Bob at the end of November and I had it, and another card that he included, back within two seeks.
Bob pitched in the Majors for parts of seven seasons. He spent the first half of his career with the A's before bouncing around with the Indians, Angels, Rangers, and Giants in the second half. He pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen and he racked up a 20-29 record with 22 saves and a 3.67 ERA. His best season was probably his rookie campaign in 1977. He had career highs that season in innings (121.2), strikeouts (69), and saves (7).
As for the College World Series, the finals are set. Mississippi State will be taking on UCLA. A few people picked MSU to be there, but no one picked them to win. One person picked UCLA to win it all, so it will probably come down to UCLA winning or losing to determine this years winner.
