TTM Success - Paul Carey
Carey (b. 1968) only played one season in the Majors. How he got there is a bit more interesting. Carey was drafted in the 4th round of the 1990 Amateur Draft by the Miami Miracle. The Miracle were a team that played in the Florida State league as an independent. That meant that they had no major league team supplying players to their club. Attendance sagged for the club and they relocated to Pompano Beach, Florida for the 1990 season and were allowed to participate in the 1990 Draft starting with the 4th round. They used their first pick on Carey, who was an All American at Stanford. Another notable pick by the Miracle that year was former infielder Mike Lansing. Carey was purchased by the Orioles from the Miracle in March of 1991. He would appear in 18 games for the Orioles in 1993 where he collected 10 hits, had no home runs and had a .213 batting average.
I mailed to Carey on November 8 and got the card back on February 16, for a 100-day TAT.
