1976 Topps #7 - Jim Umbarger

This was a big dude. According to his card, he was a 6'6" lefty. He had his best year in 1976 (10-12, 3.15). He was traded to Oakland along with Rodney Scott for Claudell Washington after the 1976 season. He was shipped back to Texas in August 1977. He pitched in 1978, but would never pitch in the majors again. He pitched in the minors until 1983.
Jim pitched for Arizona State University from 1972-1974 (go Devils!).
