#747 Bobby Witt

Why this card is awesome: Because he was born in Arlington VA but lived (at least at that time) in Arlington TX. A Tale of Two Arlingtons. And, he led the league in walks twice in a row (see back of the card.)

Cool stat: Of the 437 pitchers to throw at least 1800 innings since 1901, guess who had the highest walk rate? Yup.

Vander Meer second on the list. Nice.
