Roger McDowell

Roger Alan McDowell
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 175 lbs.
Born: December 21, 1960 in Cincinnati, OH
Drafted: 3rd round 1982 by the Mets
Departed: traded to the Philadelphia Phillies with
Lenny Dykstra and a player to be named later (Tom Edens) for Juan Samuel, June 1989

 

Besides being a pretty good pitcher, Roger was renowned as one of baseball's most accomplished pranksters. This card (from 1994 Upper Deck Collector's Choice) shows Roger with a belt-full of ping-pong-ball guns. He scored a fairly rare statistical feat by leading the 1986 World Champions both in games saved and games lost! After his playing career ended, became the respected pitching coach of the Atlanta Braves.  Two more cards are pictured below.
