#461 Danny Darwin
Why this card is awesome: Because it's Crazy Texas Time! Darwin was born in Texas, lives in Texas, played for Texas for most of his career, and the fact on the back talks about his time in the Texas League.
Cool stat: Drawin had a truly fabulous 1993 that went largely unnoticed because Boston blew a bunch of leads for him. That season was one of only 7 since 1901 where a pitcher at least 37 years old made at least 37 starts and had a WHIP of 1.07 or less.
