Bob Blaylock

1959 Topps

A 10-year minor leaguer, Blaylock was never able to find his footing in the majors. He pitched in 17 total big league games in 1956 and 1959, winning one and losing seven. He started seven total games and pitched the other 10 out of the bullpen.

He gives some nice answers to the questions though. Like Cerv, who seemed to be a Yankees’ fan, it must have been great for Blaylock, who grew up rooting for the Cardinals, to get to play for his favorite team. The first game he references was a 5-3 loss to Brooklyn on July 22, 1956 in St. Louis. Blaylock threw 7 and 2/3 innings in the game but gave up five runs. He lost to Carl Erskine, who pitched a complete game, for the Dodgers.

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
