now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
everything was going well for moreland in the 1989 season up until the trade deadline. he was hitting .299 for the tigers, with 5 homers and a .357 obp after 90 games. then, the tigers (who were going nowhere in 1989) traded him to the orioles who were fighting toronto and boston for the nl east title. in 33 games for the orioles after the trade, moreland hit just .215 with a single home run and an obp of .243. the orioles wound up 2 games back of toronto in the standings, and moreland became a free agent but wasn't signed by anybody and hung up his spikes.
voici à vous, 1989 keith moreland!
