#52 Don Robinson



Why this card is awesome: Because it lists Robinson's home town as Bradenton, FL, which is where the Pittsburgh Pirates train in the spring. It must have been nice, all his years with the Pirates, to roll out of bed and walk down to the park.

Cool stat: Robinson's 17 wild pitches in 1982 seemed like a lot, but checking it, he's just tied with a bunch of guys for 35th most wild pitches in a season since 1967.

Robinson was a pretty good hitting pitcher, too: .231/.252/.330 in 665 PA.
