Jeff Sellers

1988 Topps

Sellers pitched for four seasons for the Boston Red Sox, going 13-22 with a 4.97 ERA. He came up with Boston in 1985, but appeared in just four games. He made 13 starts for the team the next year, then started 22 games in 1987, a year that saw him win seven games. He was 1-7 the following season before being traded to the Cincinnati Reds. Unfortunately, an arm injury derailed Sellers’ career and he never appeared in a big-league game again.

Sellers was a member of the 1986 Red Sox team that lost in the World Series to the New York Mets. However, he did not play in the postseason.

In what would end up being his final major league game, Sellers pitched a no-hitter for 7 and 1/3 innings against the Cleveland Indians on Oct. 1, 1988. He surrendered a home run to Luis Medina in the seventh and was pulled from the game. Boston ended up losing 1-0.
