Thank you Aaron!

Fellow Orioles autograph collector, and occasional trade partner, Aaron recently sent me a card from a guy who I didn't have an auto of, Doug Corbett.

Doug Corbett 1987

Doug pitched poorly for the O's in 1987, his last year in the Major Leagues. He appeared as a reliever in 11 games between late June and late July and amassed an 0-2 record, 1 save, and a 7.83 ERA.

He started his career with a strong performance for the Twins in 1980, finishing the season with 23 saves and coming in third in ROY balloting behind only Joe Charboneau and Dave Stapleton. He was elected to the AL All Star team in 1981, but did not appear in the game.
