2007 Topps, Darin Erstad
#UH72 Darin Erstad
Here is the fourth signature from Darin Erstad that I have posted on here. The first three all showed him as an Angel or Angels draft pick. Here is one from his time with the White Sox.
Darin's tenure in Chicago lasted all of one season. That year, 2007, he got into 87 games and he hit .248 with 4 home runs and 32 RBI. After that, he was off to the Astros where he would finish his career.
I got this card signed at a Kansas State baseball game in 2011 while Darin was a coach for Nebraska. The following season, he got promoted to the head coach position. In his four seasons as the head coach, he has finished as the conference tournament runner-up twice and has made the national tournament once. Last season, he lead the team to a 34-23 record, but failed to make the tournament.
The Huskers will be heading to Manhattan this next season for a single game against the Cats. It would be nice to make it up there for the game, but that is still a long ways away.
