Today’s five – Bob Speake, Hector Lopez, Jackie Brandt, Jim Perry and Orlando Pena.

Interesting facts from the backs of their baseball cards.

  • Lopez has played every position except catcher and first base.
  • Speake is a golf addict.
  • Brandt twice led the minor leagues in assists
  • Perry was second in the Eastern League in wins last year (16).
  • Finally there is Pena who’s card is so fantastic it must be seen. Yes, that is a Cuban revolutionary shaking his hand. Is it supposed to be Castro? I’m not sure. Although we do know he was a big baseball fan! If you can’t make out the text, it says he won 16 games to lead his club to the Cuban baseball crown.
