Unpossible Autograph Friday- Mickey Scott
The Orioles family lost another member this past week when Mickey Scott passed away on Sunday in Binghamton, New York. He was only 64 years old.
Mickey was traded to the Orioles from the White Sox in September 1970 for Mickey McGuire, in one of the only double Mickey trades in baseball history. He pitched for the Orioles in 1972-73 and later played for the Expos and Angels. He pitched in 133 games over his five seasons in the Majors and had an 8-7 record with a 3.72 ERA.
After his big league career was over, he owned and operated Mickey's Mound, a bar in his hometown of Binghamton, and one of his regulars was no other than the infamous Billy Martin.
Mickey was nice enough to have signed this card for me back in 2009; I got the card back in under two weeks, so you know that Mickey still cared about his fans.
