This photo of Greg Sinatro is from the Hartford (CT) Courant of January 30, 1972. It shows him signing his initial contract with the Cincinnati Reds.

Tom Nevers

A first-round pick of the Astros in 1990, he spent five seasons in their system and concluded a 13-year minor league career with five seasons in the Reds' chain. He retired following the 2002 season after batting .313 -- his best year as a pro.
In between, he spent single seasons with Brewers, Twins, Angels and Cardinals organizations -- invited to the big league camp by St. Louis in 1997. He retired with 1,191 minor league hits, but only 125 above Double-A. The photo is part of Steve Moore's archive.

Gino Gentile 1983 Red Sox camp

Gino Gentile spent 12 years in the minors, and thus far has shown up only in minor league card sets. But he was on the verge of making it to the majors in the spring of 1983 after a bang-up after a .292-15-790 1982 season in Triple-A. But the Red Sox returned him to Pawtucket, where his production fell off and his window soon closed.
This is from kylesportscards current offering.

From his Edgewood Regional High School Yearbook Lester Fullylove. Cincinnati Reds 7th overall pick from the 1965 June Draft. He played in the Reds System 1965-67. He played for Aberdeen in 1965 a Orioles Minor League Affiliate, which must have also been associated with the Reds. A few of Reds Draft Picks played there that year.

Now THAT is a name I have NOT heard in almost 35 years!

Being from the Boston area, it wasn't uncommon for me and some friends to drive about a little over an hour to watch the PawSox play, particularly if the Red Sox were on the road and the game wasn't televised/rained out/late night from the west coast. A few times, Bosox played a day game and the Pawsox were at night. That was our own double header.

For every Wade Boggs, Rich Gedman and Fred Lynn, there was a Gino Gentile..and as long as he wore a Red sox jersey, be it a Boston or Pawtucket one...he was one of us.

Brian Lane Reds Never-Was

Big Brian Lane was a Texan to the core, and not a bad third baseman when he pushed his way to Double-A for the Reds when still just 19 years old. He would drive in 89 runs that year (1989) and seem poised to make his own name in baseball. His father, Harlan Lane, was a football star at Baylor and was drafted by both the AFL and NFL.
He was just 20 when got his first AAA at-bats, but failed to hit .200 and wound up back in Chattanooga. Any hope he had of finding his stroke was badly damaged when he missed the entire 1991 season with a knee injury.
He returned to Double-A Chattanooga in 1992, but was stalled at that level for the subsequent two seasons.
Lane retired at age 24 following a decent 1993 season (10-57-.264) to go into business.

Ed Van Brunt

Pitcher Edwin Earle Van Brunt, Sr., was on the Boston Braves' spring roster in 1925 and 1926. Following his active playing career, he became the athletic director at the Montclair Academy in Montclair, NJ. In 1969, the Academy named its baseball field in his honor.

Among his pitching accomplishments was striking out Babe Ruth, Bob Meusel, and Lou Gehrig in an exhibition game.

The photo of him is from his find-a-grave website. He died on June 27, 1979 in Phoenix, AZ.

Six Years with one club? Meet Ino Guerrero, Greenville Brave

Never reaching the big leagues (hence this thread), never pictured on a Topps card, Inocencio Guerrero nonetheless appeared in eBay as as Vault release Sunday. He was an absolute fixture in the Braves' system, playing in the organization from 1979 to 1988, washing out at age 27.
But remarkably, he played for six years with the Class AA Greenville (soon to become Mississippi) Braves (84-88), playing 533 games and picking up 462 hits and hitting 52 of his 90 career homers. His best year arguably would have been '86 (.285-11-55 in just 98 games, striking out only 57 times while walking 51). He had a career .265 average.

Don Gerhardt (1940 - 2017)

Don Gerhardt of Mobile, Alabama, signed with the Cardinals out of high school in 1959. A pitcher, his pro career lasted just 3 years and he never rose above Class D. His career record was 7 - 12, with an ERA of 5.15. From the numbers, it looks like he had some decent heat...and some control issues. In 208 innings, he struck out 169 and walked 161. After his pro career was over, Don remained involved with sports, coaching in youth leagues for decades. Don passed away July 7, 2017 at the age of 76.

The attached accompanied Don's obituary and is from either 1959 (Wytheville Cardinals) or 1960 (Dothan Cardinals). In both seasons, he led the pitching staff in appearances.

Ed Brooklyn

Always thought this guy had a great name for a player of the Fifties. Finally came across a photo of him. The photo shows him with the Orlando Senators. Ed hailed from Lake Mary, Florida, a town between Orlando and Sanford.

Ed, a southpaw pitcher, was a non-roster invitee with the 1951 Washington Senators.

Steve True

Another player with an interesting name, Mr. True was a pitcher who showed up as a non-roster invitee (replacement player) with the Cleveland Indians in 1995.

The photo depicts him in the uniform of the Marlow (OK) High School Outlaws. In his senior year at Marlow H.S., he tossed four no-hitters, struck out 1.8 batters for every inning pitched, and racked up a measly 0.72 ERA.

Willie Mays 1948

Teenage Willie, still literally a kid, spending the winter of 1950-51 playing for the Almendares Scorpions in the Cuban league.

(Almendares was a suburb of Havana; the team was the main rival to the Habana Lions.)

From an auction at Heritage, a couple of months back. (Purple pigment removed, sharpened and contrast-boosted.) Sorry if the board doesn't resize small enough; it's an acceptable size when previewed on my comp, but the actual image is huge.
