TTM Success- Paul Hartzell
Paul was nice enough to sign this card for me and returned my TTM request in 38 days. He appeared in 6 games for the Orioles during the 1980 season, and went 0-2 with a 6.62 ERA. He spent most of that season pitching for the O's then AAA affiliate, the Rochester Red Wings.
Overall, Paul had a 6 season MLB career, also pitching for the California Angels, Minnesota Twins and the Milwaukee Brewers.
As a fellow native Pennsylvanian, I feel like I should mention that Paul was born in Bloomsburg, PA and attended Lehigh University in south eastern PA. He is the most recent baseball player from the school to reach the Major Leagues and was inducted to their Hall of Fame in 1998.
