Bob Milacki, 1989 Donruss The Rookies #22

I can't believe that we've got actually breaking news about Bob Milacki in 2009, but so it is. The former O's righthander is entering his tenth season as a minor league pitching coach, and he's just gotten a promotion. He'll be mentoring the staff of the AA Reading Phillies, a year after coaching for the South Atlantic League champion Lakewood Blue Claws. Prior to that, he'd been in the Pirates organization since 2001. If he plays his cards right, he could be wandering back to a major league mound in a few more years to impart wisdom like "keep the ball down" and "work quickly". Godspeed, Bob. Godspeed.

Got his autograph a few times in the Arizona Fall League - pretty nice guy.

I always confuse this dude and Dave Mlicki, I have no idea why.

Laurens - Glad to hear it.

Max - Well, similar enough names, and they're both righty pitchers whose careers overlapped. I could see the confusion.
