Phew, took a while, but Tom Hume?

Damn you Andrew!

Andrew has officially taken the lead.

Hume looks like a nerdy high school algebra teacher. He picked up the save for the NL in the All-Star game the year he was selected to the mid-summer classic.

I think the next "Name That Player" will go back to text only hints...no more pictures. Of course, I'd like to do some "Name that Hairdo" and funs things like that too.

on this one I didn't use the picture for anything but judging what era it was from. and even that I was originally wrong about when I was searching.

I need to pull someone from the late 70's/early 80's that's obscure.

Yer right about the pictures Carson.

I took one look at that photo just a minute ago and said Tom Hume without blinking an eye. Of course I also said this has aleady been answered for I refuse to wake up oclock in the morning to take a stroll down memory lane.
