Scott McGregor, 2009 Grandstand IronBirds #16
I just pulled out a team set of Aberdeen IronBirds cards from 2009. It's been six years, so even though Cal and Billy Ripken's team is in the short-season low-A New York-Penn League (too many hyphens!), I figured that one of these guys might have broken through for at least a cup of coffee in the big leagues by now. A shot of espresso, maybe? Uh, nope. So instead, enjoy this Scott McGregor card. Scotty has been coaching in the Orioles organization since 2002, including multiple stints at Aberdeen and even a short turn as the O's major league bullpen coach two years ago. So at least somebody from the '09 IronBirds made it to Baltimore.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
