Card O' The Day: 1993 Upper Deck #436 Chad McConnell

Be's hot today. And at 7 months pregnant this does not make me a happy camper. That being said, I pulled this card randomly off of the top of a pile of cards that have not been organized yet. No thought or pre-planning was put into this post at all today.

Apparently, Chad McConnell was a "top prospect" back in good ol' 1993 -- at least according to Upper Deck. I can honestly say that I wasn't paying much attention to the prospects back in 1993. After seeing the smug look that Chad is giving the camera, I felt the burning desire to delve deeper into the mystery.

After 2 1/2 minutes of extensive research, here's what I discovered --
  1. Chad was on the 1992 Olympic Team.
  2. He was drafted in the first round of the 1992 draft. That's right, the same draft that produced Derek Jeter.
  3. Poor Chad never made it to the big show, splitting his time between Clearwater and Reading.
  4. He finished his career in 1996 with 119 strikeouts for the season.
