1982 tim foli

tim foli left 'the family' in pittsburgh as he was traded to the angels in december of 1981. here is his 1982 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
when we last saw foli he had gone from the giants to the mets who then sent him on to pittsburgh in time for their 1979 world championship. in california, foli was destined for a super utility role until rick burleson was injured and foli became the starting shortstop. foli hit .252 for the al west champs in '82, but had a poor showing in the alcs against the brewers, managing just 2 hits in 16 at bats as the halos lost in heartbreaking fashion.managed only two hits and one RBI as the Angels lost to the Milwaukee Brewers three games to two.

foli was back with the angels in 1983, although they both underachieved. foli was benched toward the end of the season in favor of rookie ricky adams and the returning rick burleson. after the season, the angels sent foli to the yankees, as we will see in a couple of days.

voici à vous, 1982 tim foli!
