1989 dave lapoint

after a one day break, we're back to finish up 'dave lapoint' days.

as mentioned a couple of days ago, dave lapoint ended the 1988 season in pittsburgh. after the season, he signed as a free agent with the yankees. here is his 1989 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
lapoint spent 2 full seasons with the yankees, compiling a 13-19 record with a 4.74 era. all but one of his 48 appearances were as a starter. prior to the 1991 season, the yankees released lapoint, but he signed on with the phillies. after just 2 starts in philadelphia, he was released again. he signed deals with the brewers and cubs later in the 1991 season, but failed to get back to the big leagues with either club.

so, after 9 teams (with 2 stints in philadelphia), 6 trades, and 4 o-pee-chee variations in 5 years, dave lapoint's career was at an end.

voici à vous, 1989 dave lapoint!
