Rudi (b. 1946) played in the majors from 1967 to 1982 for the A's (KC and Oakland), Angels and Red Sox. He had 1,468 hits, 179 home runs and a .264 batting average. He was a 3-time All Star (1972, 1974 and 1975) and 3-time Gold Glove Award Winner (1974, 197 and 1976). His best finish in the AL MVP voting was 2nd, wich he did twice (1972 and 1974). He won the World Series 3 times (1972, 1973 and 1974) with the A's. Rudi appeared on the 1988 Hall of Fame ballot, but did not receive any votes.
I mailed to Rudi on February 5 and got the cards back on March 26, for a 49-day TAT.

Reinheimer (b. 1992) played in the majors for 2 games in 2017 with the Diamondbacks. He's currently with the Reno Aces, the AAA affiliate of the Diamondbacks. What I didn't realize was that he was from Charlotte, and he played at ECU. He's only batting .236 so far this season, so hopefully he will heat up and see his way back to the majors, where he hopefully will collect his first hit.
I mailed to Reinheimer via Diamondbacks spring training on February 15 and got the card back on March 26, for a 39-day TAT.

Metzger (b. 1947) played in the majors from 1970 to 1980 for the Cubs, Astros and Giants. He had 972 hits, 5 home runs and a .231 batting average. He was a Gold Glove Award winner in 1973. For someone with as low a career average as he had, it is interesting that he led the NL in triples twice in his career (1971 - 11 and 1973 - 14).
I mailed to Metzger on February 24 and got the cards back on March 26, for a 30-day TAT.

Lonborg (b. 1942) played in the majors from 1965 to 1979 for the Red Sox, Brewers and Phillies. He had a career record of 157-137 with 1,475 strike outs and a 3.86 ERA. He was the 1967 AL Cy Young Award winner when he went 22-9 with 246 strike outs and a 3.16 ERA. He was also an All Star that season and finished 6th in the AL MVP race.
He appeared on two Hall of Fame ballots, 1984 and 1985, but didn't receive more than 0.8% of the vote.
I mailed to Lonborg on March 17 and got the cards back on March 26, for a 9-day TAT.

I was most excited about meeting Ryan Ripken, son of Cal. He was really friendly, and chatted with us for a bit.
I wanted to get the Fireflies postgame, but we were all tired from a busy day, so we left early (after 14 total runs were scored) and went out to eat. I plan on going back this season and graphing with my brother. I'm sure he would be up for some graphing...
