1976 Topps #584 - Stan Wall

  • Stan Wall pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers from 1975-1977. Wall was drafted by the Dodgers in 1969. He spent a lot of time in the minors, including four full seasons and parts of two others with the Albuquerque Dukes of the Pacific Coast League.
  • Wall got a shot with the Dodgers in July 1975 after starting the season with a 9-5 record and a 2.38 ERA in 23 games (11 starts) in Albuquerque. Stan pitched in ten games for the Dodgers in 1975 and was 0-1 with a 1.69 ERA.
  • Stan stayed with the Dodgers for the entire 1976 season and went 2-2 with one save and had a 3.60 ERA in 31 games.
  • Wall started the 1977 season with the Dodgers and went 2-3 with a 5.34 ERA in 25 games. Stan also pitched in Albuquerque for part of the season but wasn't very successful (2-3, 7.63 ERA in 11 games). The Dodgers voted Wall a half-share of their playoff money after the 1977 season.
  • There is no record of a transaction for Wall after the 1977 season -- he probably retired.

  1. Last card I needed to complete the Dodgers' team set from this year. It took me a long time to get it, too.

  3. I love the hair. Positively Lincecumian, if you ask me. I've got Stan and some other 70s longhairs right here:
