1986 Topps – Zach Stewart

I have been following Zach for some time now as a player. In 2009 I saw him pitch for the Las Vegas 51’s at Wrigley Field as part of the Road to Wrigley game. I took some pictures of him, and had a couple that turned out fairly decent. I posted one of them on my other website along with a quick recap of the game. That is when one of the cooler things that I have found about blogging happened. His mother found the pictures, and wanted to know if I had anymore. I sent them to her, and that small personal connection was enough for me to check on Zach’s progress from time to time. Today Zach was traded to my White Sox as part of the deal that sent Edwin Jackson and Mark Teahen to the Blue Jays. I look forward to taking some pictures of him as a member of the Sox. (more…)

Miguel was a very solid catcher for the White Sox. He was traded to the Mariners in the deal that brought Freddy Garcia to the Sox. He has since been on a few teams in the Majors. This past off season had to be weird for him. He was traded to the Blue Jays who then declined his 2011 option making him a free agent. The Mariners then signed him, and that is where he is now playing. Must be strange to get traded to a team who then does not pick up the option to keep you. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Brad Mumma

Minor League Monday concludes with another card of local pitcher Brad Mumma. I had some good pictures of him so I thought I would make a couple of cards out of them. Brad was a guy who grew up in my hometown of LaPorte, IN before playing briefly in the Blue Jays organization. He closed out his career by pitching for the Joliet Jackhammers. (more…)
