TTM Success - Roger McDowell
I had only one of these 1996 Fleer Update McDowells that had him in an Orioles uniform. I had hoped to get it signed at Orioles Fan Fest, but I missed out.
McDowell (b. 1960) played in the majors from 1985 to 1996 for the Mets, Phillies, Dodgers, Rangers and Orioles. He had a career record of 70-70 with a 3.30 ERA and 524 strike outs. He won the World Series with the Mets in 1986.
I mailed to McDowell at Orioles Spring Training on February 20 and got the cards back on December 9, for a 296-day TAT. McDowell will be starting his second season as Orioles pitching coach when the 2018 season starts. Let's hope his pitching staff does a much better job then, because they were terrible in 2017.
