1981 Donruss, Doc Medich


#386 Doc Medich

Here is one of my latest additions to this set. Why I did not get it signed a few years back in my heyday for sending out TTM requests for this set is unknown to me. But, I noticed some successes from Doc on SCN a couple of months ago, so I gave it a shot. Obviously, it worked out in my favor and I had this card back to me in just two weeks.

Doc pitched in the Major for eleven seasons. While spending most of his time with the Yankees and Rangers, he also had short stints with the Pirates, A's, Mariners, Mets, and Brewers. His tenures with the A's, M's, and Mets were all squeezed into one season.

Over those eleven seasons, Doc won 124 games and hit double digits in wins eight times, including a career high of 19 with the Yankees in 1974. He also had his best strikeout season that year when he fanned 154 batters.

Doc finished his career with a winning record, a 3.78 ERA, and 955 strikeouts. Over that time, he never made an All Star team, but he did pitch one game in the World Series with the Brewers in 1982.

Doc actually was a Doctor...at least until his license was permanently suspended for prescribing drugs to himself.
