From there he is called upon by Danny Kaye to assemble the Seattle franchise but is not able to duplicate the same type of success, says that 1989 Donruss # 132 Kirk Gibson Los Angeles Dodgers Baseball Card could have been drafted there. Odd characters shared.

From there he goes to the Mets where they could have had 1985 Topps Baseball #181 Roger Clemens Rookie Card. Odd experience there when a player is almost arrested at the ballpark.

From there he goes to the Red Sox where they could have had 1985 Topps Baseball #536 Kirby Puckett Rookie Card.
