#416 Keith Moreland

Why this card is awesome: Because like Wayne Tolleson's card, this is another card where it seems the entire background was airbrushed out a bit. I don't think it's looks that dark due just to photographic technique.

Cool stat: From 1982 to 1986, Moreland is the only player to have between 12 and 16 homers every year. Dave Henderson came close. Moreland also has one of the more recent seasons with at least 100 RBI but no more than 15 HR.

Not a legitimate comment, plus Don Carman is still waiting too.

Hey, I remember when Moreland flew out to extend Orel Hershiser's consecutive scoreless innings streak to 59 to break Drysdale's record. Here's the game: http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/SDN/SDN198809280.shtml

Moreland pinch-hit for Andy Hawkins in the 10th(!) and Hershiser induced a fly-out to right.
