So, let's get on with it. The cards are featured alphabetically by team, starting with the AL teams. So the Baltimore Orioles go first. Players from each team are also included alphabetically, so first among the Orioles is pitcher Jeff Ballard. Ballard pitched for the Orioles from 1987 through 1991, and then for the Pirates in 1993 and 1994. He compiled a career record of 41-53 with a 4.71 ERA and 2 saves.
Jeff Ballard card back.
Ballard is honored in the set for placing #5 in the AL in wins with 18. He went 18-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 1989, in what was really his only good season in the majors. The only other year he had a winning record was 1993, when he went 4-1 primarily as a reliever.
Up next (on Wednesday): Phil Bradley, also of the Orioles. Thanks for reading!
